All students seeking enrollment in nursing and/or other allied health programs must initially follow Howard Community College's general admissions procedures. Additional admissions requirements and procedures vary by program. The college reserves the right to revise admissions policies for all of its clinical healthcare programs in accordance with state law and accreditation requirements, and for reasons deemed necessary for student and program success.
Articulation agreements between HCC and other colleges may be a factor in admission to specific programs. Students presently planning to change their learning program to nursing and/or other allied health programs must see an academic advisor to complete a change of learning program form.
Admission to the clinical component of allied health programs requires the successful completion of certain prerequisite courses. Please note that science courses taken at other colleges with online labs may not necessarily transfer to HCC. Students should check with an allied health advisor before taking a course at another college in pursuit of an HCC allied health program.
HCC offers a variety of resources to help students understand the college enrollment process, including managing the cost of their education. Financial assistance includes grants, scholarships, loans, work-study, and payment plans. Please visit our Pay for College website and Financial Aid Services to learn more.
