Admission to Programs
Due to the limited number of faculty and available clinical resources, a quota has been placed on the number of students admitted to clinical courses within the programs of the department. To be admitted to one of the programs, a student must first meet the requirements of the university and then may be required to make separate application to their appropriate program. The policy outlining the admission process as well as expenses unique to allied health education programs may be obtained from the specific program director.
The university assumes no responsibility for successful completion of any type of standardized or professional examinations that the student is required or desires to take to complete requirements for certification, registration, and/or licensure.
