During the fall semester, Health Science students begin working on their applications for the clinical non-credit, non-degree certificate programs. Preference is given to applicants with completed prerequisite coursework prior to advancement to the Health Science program senior year curriculum. Each application consists of two letters of recommendation, a personal essay, and college transcripts.
We strongly advise students to make an appointment with the program director of the clinical non-credit, non-degree certificate program that interests them well in advance of submitting an application to ensure that they meet the minimum qualifications before applying.
The clinical non-credit, non-degree certificate program’s admissions committee carefully reviews all applications. Qualified applicants are invited for personal interviews. No telephone interviews are granted. Each candidate is evaluated based on a variety of factors including, but not limited to, academic achievement, references, demonstrated concern for others, motivation, and quality of past health care experience. Students are notified of their acceptance or non-acceptance into the clinical non-credit, non-degree certificate program before the end of the fall semester in order to appropriately register for spring concentration courses.
The enrollment capacity for each clinical concentration varies each year. Meeting minimum qualifications does not guarantee admission into the clinical non-credit, non-degree certificate program, nor does it guarantee an interview.

|Healthcare Quality: Coding and Reimbursement||8-10 students|
|Anesthesia Technology||10 students|
