Petitioning Information

The Petition Process is the method that students follow to inform the School of Health Sciences when they are ready and prepared to begin the core technical courses in their chosen health science program.  All students must petition and be accepted into their program before registering for core technical courses.  When we look at each student for admission to our School of Health Programs, we consider the whole student, including grades, test scores and work experience.   We understand that there is great variation among our applicants’ personal circumstances, home communities, and life experience.  As a result, our petition process considers all aspects of applicants' record and experience and not just a single criterion.  In furtherance of our goals to create a diverse and dynamic student body, we also consider ethnicity and status as a non-traditional student.
