Re-Admission to Allied Health Programs

Students who have received a “C-“ or lower in either the theoretical or the clinical component of the Allied Health Programs, or who have withdrawn from program core course(s), may be able to receive consideration for re-admission to the program on a one-time only basis. Decisions for re-admission will be based on the same criteria as used for all applicants and the availability of space in the class. Due to the competitiveness of the program, students who were previously academically ineligible to continue in the program will normally have a five- year waiting period before being considered for re-admission.

All Allied Health Programs must be completed within three years of taking the first core course. In addition, the following conditions must be met: Documentation must be presented to the Office of Admissions explaining why the student should be allowed readmission into the Allied Health Program. In addition, students must formally reapply for admission into the program by completing an admission application and meet the standards of admission as defined in the College Catalog.

For additional information, please refer to the College Catalog or contact the Admissions Office at 888-TRY-NCCC ext 1686 or
