Competitive Admissions Process

Health Programs

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. You may take courses at FTCC in the Associate in General Education program as you prepare to compete.

    • Under the Registration Section
    • Select “Student Health Program Application”

    • Choose your desired health program from the drop-down menu
    • Submit the application
      Note: You can only apply for one health program.
  2. Print the receipt provided and keep it for your records.
  3. Monitor your student email for further communication. (Look for your Health Applicant Rating Form in mid to late March.)
  4. Attend a mandatory Health Program Information Session.


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.
