The acceptance of transfer students into health science courses is based upon the following:

  • space available in the specific course being requested
  • evaluation of the applicant's college transcript and course materials including: appropriate grades in all course work being considered for transfer comparable content, semester hours, and clinical experiences in courses being considered for transfer
  • letter documenting good standing from administrator of the transferring program
  • ability to meet all MDCC requirements for graduation
  • individual program guidelines

Students applying for admission into health science programs must meet the general college admission requirements. In addition, each program has individual requirements. Students wishing to apply to a specific program should consult the Policy of Admission to Health Science Programs and admission requirements specific to the individual program. Due to accreditation requirements, changes may occur in the curricula, course offerings, and course content for programs. It is imperative that students seek advisement on course requirements and selection each semester.

Many students choose to take specific required academic courses prior to applying to health science programs. While this is encouraged, it does not ensure admission to the actual program. Applications to the health science programs are evaluated on a competitive basis.
