ADMISSION TO HEALTH CAREERS PROGRAMS
The college will accept to the limit of its physical and financial resources all who wish to attend and who meet the admissions requirements of each program. The Health Careers Programs, because of excessively high demand, have additional admission requirements and recommend early application; however, the School does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, sex, age, national origin or disability.
A person must show evidence of good physical and mental health, a medical record with specific health requirements and immunizations are required upon admission, followed by an annual TB test. Each student who registers is required to purchase liability insurance yearly.

TEXAS HOUSE BILL 1508
Texas House Bill 1508 requires colleges to inform students with a criminal background that a criminal record may preclude them from being licensed for certain professions. For students in this course who may have a criminal background, please be advised that your criminal history could keep you from being licensed by the State of Texas. If you have a question about your background and licensure, please speak with your faculty member or department chair.
