Health Sciences Program Admissions

Admission information for SLCC Health Sciences programs is available on each program’s Admissions page listed in the table below. The Health Science programs use either a selective or a rolling admissions process, separate from the general college admission process. The cost for each application is $25.00.

Students who have applied more than once in a year can be refunded the second application fee by emailing This policy does not apply to students who are accepted to and begin a program but do not successfully complete it.

The Disability Resource Center provides reasonable accommodations to students, but you’re responsible to disclose your disability and to provide appropriate documentation to receive accommodations.

You’re also responsible to meet reasonable expectations in your courses, and to seek the services you may need from other departments, such as Academic Advising, the Learning Center, the library, etc.

In addition, you should:

  • Deliver Accommodation Authorization Letters to your instructors.
  • Renew accommodations each semester after registering for classes, and discuss any changes needed to your accommodations.
  • Contact your Accessibility Advisor if changes occur, or if you experience problems, or if your accommodations are interrupted.

One of the biggest hurdles for applicants is getting their transcripts evaluated in time. Please make sure that your transcripts are submitted at least 4 weeks before the application deadline (8 weeks for out of state transcripts) or there is a possibility that they will not be evaluated before the application closes. This could put your application in jeopardy and cause you to have to reapply the next time the application is open.

All communication will be through your Bruinmail. If you are not checking it (or haven't forwarded it to your personal email) you may miss important information. If you are accepted to a program a confirmation email will be required, please read all emails carefully and thoroughly to make sure you don't miss any information.

If you do not receive an email confirming receipt of your application within 7 days please contact us at 801-957-6253.
