Health Sciences Admissions
Health Sciences programs have special admissions requirements. These requirements are in addition to those completed for the College. Until you complete the special admission requirements and are accepted into your intended program of study, you will be enrolled as an Associate in General Education (AGE) major.

Health Sciences admissions policies are not to be regarded as an irrevocable contract between Pitt Community College and students. Pitt Community College reserves the right to change any provisions or requirements at any time. Every effort will be made to minimize the inconvenience such changes create for students.
It is the policy of Pitt Community College not to discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, handicap, religion, age, or national origin in the recruitment and admission of students; the recruitment, employment, training, and promotion of faculty and staff; and the operation of any of its programs and activities, as specified by federal laws and regulations. Pitt Community College is an equal opportunity institution.
Students admitted to health sciences programs are required to complete a clinical practicum. Clinical facilities may require criminal background checks, drug screenings, credit checks, professional license checks, and/or proof of US citizenship prior to or during participation in the clinical portion of a program. Any expenses associated with these requirements are the responsibility of the student. Pending the outcome, clinical facilities may deny a student the opportunity to complete the clinical portion of a program. A student who is unable to complete the clinical portion of a program will not be able to graduate.
Criminal background checks, drug screenings, credit checks, professional license checks, and/or proof of US citizenship may also be required after graduation by examination boards, state licensing boards, and employing agencies. Pending the outcome, a graduate may be disqualified from examination eligibility, state licensure, and/or employment.
