School of Health Professions Admissions Office

We provide a variety of services related to outreach and recruitment and career counseling for students who are interested in a career in an allied health field. We also receive and process the applications for all of the credit programs in the School of Health Professions.

All credit programs in the School of Health Professions (SHP) are selective admissions programs. Application for admission to these programs is a separate process from admission to CCBC. Admission to the college does not imply admission to any of the programs in the SHP.

Admission is competitive and may depend upon these factors:
  • Grades in prerequisite courses
  • Patient contact experience
  • Reference letters
  • Interviews
  • Pre-admission testing
  • Overall CCBC GPA
Each program has its own admission criteria and application deadline. Admission packets can be found on the program pages.

Students in the School of Health Professions are required to conduct themselves according to an honor code, exhibit professional behavior, communicate effectively in English, provide proof of health insurance and immunizations, participate in a criminal background check and submit to drug testing.

All applications to SHP programs are only available online. After students have applied to CCBC, they will apply through CCBC CAS, CASPA, or ADEA DHCAS according to the directions found in the admission packet for that program. The link to the application service is also contained in the admission packet.

Note: Applicants who are accepting a seat into the Practical Nursing or Registered Nursing programs are required to pay a non-refundable $200 seat fee to accept their offer of admission and reserve their seats in the program. The fee will be applied to the student account after the first several weeks of class. Students who accept the seat and then do not attend the program will not be eligible for a refund of the fee.

Nondiscrimination Policy

Applicants to the CCBC School of Health Professions will not be discriminated against with regard to recruitment, admission, or any other practices or policies on the basis of race, sex, color, national or ethnic origin, age, religion or the expression thereof, sexual orientation, disability, or other legally protected status.
