Competitive Admissions Process
With the exception of the Mammography and Nurse Aide programs, all health programs require a competitive admissions process. A student must complete all pre-requisites and gain competitive points in order to apply for program approval. Students may take the designated program-related courses at FTCC in the Associate in General Education-Health program as they prepare to compete.
For all Competitive Health Programs: November 1st through January 30th
For Associate Degree Nursing Only: June 1st through July 31st (2nd Entry Point)
- Complete the FTCC Application Process
- Attend a Health Applicant Counseling Session
- Sessions are available online or in person in the Health Technologies Center
- Bring your Student Education Plan (if you don’t have one, please stop by HTC 202 during regular business hours to attain your SEP), paper and a pen
- Do not bring children due to space limitations

- Apply to your health program of choice in WebAdvisor.
- Under the Registration Section
- Select “Student Health Program Application”
- Ensure all personal information is correct
- Choose your desired health program from the drop-down menu
- Submit the application
Note: You can only apply for one health program.
- Print the receipt provided and keep it for your records.
- Monitor your student email for further communication. (Look for your Health Applicant Rating Form in mid to late March.)
- Attend a mandatory Health Program Information Session. Failure to attend this Information Session will result in removal from the competitive process.
Each program has a competitive points worksheet that outlines the potential points a candidate can achieve. During the selection process, Category I applicants will be placed in order of most points followed by Category II applicants. A program will accept the top students based on the number of available seats.
In May, applicants will be notified by student email of their status: Selected, Alternate, or Not Selected.
If a program does not fill to capacity, the admission process for that program may be re-opened.
If you have any questions about the admissions process or need assistance, a health counselor is available in the Health Technologies Center (HTC) in room 202. You may also contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
