which health science program am i most suited for
Which Health Science Program Am I Most Suited For?
  • Please refer to the yellow sheetby this title included in your packet of materials
  • Self-survey to determine which health science program best suits your:
    • Personal characteristics
    • Personal interests
    • Medical interests
    • Academic interests
    • Career goals
levels of training 2
Levels of Training (2)
  • Certificate Programs
    • Marketable skills in a short period of time
    • Transferable skills to other programs of study
  • Associate Degree Programs
    • Upon successful completion of the program, the student is awarded an associate’s degree
    • Commonly referred to as “Two-year Programs”
    • Frequently takes longer than 2 years to complete
certificate programs require less than 2 years to complete
Certificate Programs -Require less than 2 years to complete
  • “Marketable” – provides students with skills that they can take into the workplace and obtain employment
  • “Transferable” – skills may transfer to other health science programs.
  • Please refer to the blue sheet titled:
    • “I am Interested in a Career in the Health Care Industry! Q: Where Do I Begin?
    • A: Certificate Programs!”

allied health admissions process criteria
Allied Health Admissions Process Criteria
  • Three factors are used to admit students into the Health Science Programs
  • The factors are:
    • Grade point average
    • Number of college hours completed
    • Course Success Weighting
grade point average
Grade Point Average
  • The higher a person’s GPA, the more points they accrue toward admissions
  • Examples:
    • 3.8 GPA earns more points than a 2.5 GPA
number of college hours weighted differently for nursing than for allied health programs
Number of College Hours -Weighted Differently for Nursing than for Allied Health Programs
  • The more college credits a person has, the more points they accrue toward admissions
  • Examples:
    • 65 college credit hours earns more points than
    • 21 credit hours
success weighted courses
Success Weighted Courses

Program Coordinators have selected certain courses as predictors of student success in health science programs

  • Each program has a different set of courses identified.
  • Grades earned in the success courses earn points toward admissions
points assigned to grades in success courses
Points Assigned to Grades in Success Courses
  • Example:
    • An “A” in BIO 180 will earn a student 5 success points toward admission to the nursing program
    • A “C” in BIO 180 will earn a student 3 points toward admission to the nursing program

Points Assigned to Grades in Success Courses – Health Sciences

A = 3 points

B = 2 points

C = 1 point

All other grades = 0 points

sample calculation radiology student has
Sample Calculation/Radiology Student has:
  • Has completed 24 college credits
  • 3.0 grade point average
  • Has completed the following success courses with the following grades assigned:
    • BIO 180 “A”
    • MTH 101 “B”
    • MRT 110 “B”
sample radiology student admission point total
Sample Radiology Student Admission Point Total
  • GPA (3.0) = 7 points
  • College credit hours = 4 points
  • Student has BIO-180 with an A
    • 3 points X 4 credit hours = 12 points
  • Student has MTH-101 with a B
    • 2 points X 4 credit hours = 8 points Student has MTH-101 with a B
    • Student has MRT-110 with a B— 2 points X 3 credit hours = 6 points
total points radiology example
Total Points – Radiology Example
  • GPA = 7 points
  • College credits = 4 points
  • Total points for success courses = 12 for BIO-180 + 8 for MTH-101 + 6 for MRT-110 = 26 Pts
  • Grand total: 37 points
