More Details

The Associate in Health Science Degree program was designed to be the next step in health care educational opportunities. Students, who have completed a non-credit post-secondary health care training program, culminating in certification or licensure, are encouraged to enroll in this degree program. This program offers the general educational component which, when completed and combined with credit awarded for their prior health care education, qualify the student to be awarded an
Associate of Applied Science Degree in Health Science. 
Credit for certification/licensure will be granted after completion of the degree requirements (with grades of “C” or higher) resulting in 61/62 credits. The number of credits awarded for non-credit training will be determined by a review committee consisting of appropriate faculty and administrators at the College. Applicants are required to submit the following documentation for review: copy of current license or certificate, transcripts and a diploma from the completed training program, and a current resume.

The objectives of this program are to:

  • Provide educational opportunities for allied health and nursing personnel who have graduated from accredited programs with certificates and/or diplomas, or who are certified or licensed to practice in their chosen field of endeavor.
  • Provide career opportunities for licensed/certified allied health personnel, by improving their educational credentials which will allow them to advance in the allied health field or a new field of study.
