Selective Enrollment

All Triton College Health Careers Programs are selective enrollment, meaning; applicants must qualify for the program before acceptance can be awarded. The programs award acceptance by a point system; the higher the points awarded, the stronger an applicant's chances are for acceptance.

All math and science classes expire five years from the time they were taken. Applicants have the option to test out of math courses by taking the Triton College algebra placement exam administered by the testing center.

Information sessions are no longer mandatory, but strongly encouraged. Attending an information session provides a prospective applicant with a foundation of what is required for their desired health career program of choice.

There are deadlines for applying to the Health Careers Programs. Applicants should apply to their program of choice after the prerequisites are complete. If not accepted, you must reapply at the final deadline of June 1st to be considered for the next admission year.
