To be eligible for admission, the applicant must meet the following requirements:
Note: Due to the passage of Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2012, applicants who do not have a high school diploma or equivalent and did not complete secondary school in a home-school setting can no longer gain eligibility for Title IV, HEA funds by passing an “ability-to-benefit” test unless the applicant previously attended an eligible program at any Title IV institution prior to July 1, 2012 then the applicant may continue to establish Title IV eligibility in any eligible program under one of the ATB Alternatives as a “grandfathered student”. If an applicant meets the “grandfathered test” then he/she may be admitted into the Medical Assistant or Patient Care Technician programs upon demonstrating the ability to benefit (ATB) and successfully attaining a minimum score of 200 Verbal/210 Quantitative on Wonderlic Basic Skills Test, or has satisfactorily completed 225 clock hours of our programs in place of the ATB. 10
The applicant for the Nursing Assistant/Home Health Aide program who lacks a high school diploma or equivalent must pass a Scholastic Level Exam (SLE) with a score of 11 or higher to qualify for admission. The applicant is entitled to two attempts on the same day to achieve a passing score. In the event the applicant fails to achieve the minimum passing score after the second attempt, the applicant is eligible to take a third attempt using another version after a minimum of 24 hours has elapsed from date of the second attempt. After these three attempts the applicant can retake the test one more time 30 days from the date of the last attempt. Note: Nursing Assistant/Home Health Aide program is not a Title IV, HEA eligible program.
Disclosure: Presence of criminal convictions on record may make a student ineligible for state licensure and may prevent a student from being employed in the field for which they have been trained.
