Healthcare Sciences Admissions

Students who plan a program of study leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Sciences must first be accepted for admission to the University. Applicants then apply to the Healthcare Sciences major during the semester in which all prerequisites will be completed. Applicants work with an assigned advisor and are required to submit a completed application form. Applications and all support materials must be completed and turned in by deadline to be considered. Applications to the program are submitted through SentryMD by the date indicated by the instructor of the HCSC 2310 course.

Applicants work with an assigned admissions coordinator to complete the application and are required to submit:

  • Letter of intent.
  • Completed application form. 
  • Current health care provider CPR certification.
  • Satisfactory results of a criminal background screening.
  • Health and immunization packet. 
  • Acknowledgement of program essential functions.
  • Official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended.
  • Possible interview with the selection committee.

To provide the student with the most current academic curriculum and to meet accreditation standards, the program uses the degree plan and catalog requirements on the date in which the student is admitted to the program and/or major, not the university matriculation date. Students who leave the program and/or major and are re-admitted must follow the degree plan and catalog requirements at the time of re-admission.

Selection Criteria for Admission

To be considered for admission, the student must meet the following criteria:

  • Completed application with all support components present.
  • 30 hours of college-level credit with a minimum cumulative 3.25 GPA at admission and throughout the entirety of enrollment in the program.
