Steps for SuccessStudents who intend to apply for admission to one of the School of Health Professions programs at CCBC should follow these steps, in order.
All applications to SHP Programs are only available online.
Note: Applicants who are accepting a seat into any of the Nursing programs are required to pay a non-refundable $200 seat fee to accept their offer of admission and reserve their space 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.
