Some programs through the School of Health Sciences have additional requirements beyond those needed to enter AACC.

The following information is only for students applying to Health Science programs that require an additional application.


Attend an Information Session

The first step in applying to a Health Sciences program is to attend an information session. Some programs — but not all — offer online information sessions. If you decide to view an online information session, be sure to sign in with your information at the end of the session.

Attending an information session is strongly recommended, and in some cases, required before submitting an application. Information sessions tend to be informal and cover admission and academic requirements, the application and selection process, curriculum, and career opportunities. Sessions run one to 1 ½ hours and are conducted by the program faculty.
