HPS Selective Admission

Selective Admission Process (Progression)

Due to high demand and limited availability of clinical education sites, some Health and Public Safety degree programs require students to apply for Selective Admission (sometimes referred to as "Progression"). These programs include:

How does Selective Admission work?

Programs participating in the Selective Admission process use a point system to determine a student’s readiness for admission. Elements of this point system include:

  • For the associate's degree programs with Selective Admission, a minimum GPA of 2.75
    • For the Practical Nursing Certificate, a minimum GPA of 2.50 is required
       
  • A standardized admission test for most Selective Admission applicants, called TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills). Find out more about TEAS.
     
  • Calculation of GPA for Math and Science courses
    • Math/Science minimum GPA of 2.75 for associate's degree programs
    • Math/Science minimum GPA of 2.00 for the Practical Nursing Certificate
    • Courses can be repeated only one time
    • In some programs, working ahead on math and science courses in the curriculum may earn extra points
       
  • Deduction of a point for each course a student takes more than one time

In addition, other categories may earn points towards Selective Admission, depending on the program. Information is available from the program advisor and on this website, on the pages for each program.

Additional considerations

  • Selective Admission deadlines occur at different times for each program. The dates are available from the program advisor and on this website, on the pages for each program.
     
  • Interested students may need to complete several prerequisites before becoming eligible to apply for Selective Admission. Students are encouraged to meet with a program advisor for guidance on completing these courses or other requirements.
     
  • Students should plan to attend an Information Session to learn more about the Selective Admission process. Dates are available from the program advisor and on this website, on the pages for each program.
