Health Sciences Admissions Information

Are you interested in pursuing a career in the Health Sciences field? If so, you will find that SCC offers a variety of programs of study in the Health Sciences field for you to choose from! If you are interested in pursing any of the programs below you will need to participate in a mandatory pre-admission conference. These pre-admission conferences are very helpful to students because they outline the admission process and criteria. Depending on the program you are interested in will depend on whether the pre-admission conference is online, in person or just simply a meeting with the program coordinator directly. Review the pre-admission conference information below for more details on how to get started.
