I completed science courses. How long do I have to apply them to my health career program?

You have seven years to apply science courses to your health career program requirements. This includes courses you completed at HACC and courses you transferred to HACC.

Can I get into the clinical portion if I have a criminal background?

If you have a criminal background, you may apply to the clinical portion of a health career program at HACC. You must follow the Prohibitive Offense Procedure (pdf) for Health Career Programs.
