ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS – HEALTH PROFESSIONS PROGRAMS

The Jefferson College of Health Professions is a career-oriented, baccalaureate, graduate certificate, master’s, and doctoral degree institution that offers professional study mainly to students who have completed approximately two to four years of prerequisite coursework elsewhere. Students enter after completing prerequisite coursework at an accredited college or university. Unless otherwise noted, specific college credits are required for admission. Specific programs and the courses required for admission are listed within the respective department web pages. Upon approval of the Dean, certain admission prerequisites may be deferred until after matriculation.

SELECTION

The responsibility for determining the admission of candidates is vested in the Committee on Admissions. Criteria for selection include the strength of the academic record (with particular emphasis on performance in science and other related courses), work and/or volunteer experience, test scores if applicable and recommendations. Personal characteristics are important, particularly the ability to function in a healthcare setting.

ADMISSION OF VETERANS

Veterans are admitted under the same general requirements as non-veterans. Career counseling services are available. Questions regarding the credentials of veterans should be discussed with the Office of Admissions.
