Health Sciences Admission Requirements

Wake Tech’s Health Sciences programs are highly-regarded and extremely popular. As such, the majority of our programs have limited enrollment; we cannot accept everyone who applies. Please review the information on this site to learn more about the programs offered, the program specific admission requirements, and the separate program application. Please note that for Health Science programs, grades of “C” or better are required in all program-related curriculum classes (except for Human Services and Health & Fitness Science).

To get started in a Health Sciences program, select the Program of Study you are interested in from the left navigation menu.

Many of the programs use a first-come, first-served process to determine entry into clinical classes. Other programs utilize a competitive process to determine entry into clinical classes.  Students are encouraged to apply early so that they can take any classes needed to fulfill admissions requirements before the program-specific application deadlines.

Since Wake Tech’s Health Sciences programs have special admission and enrollment requirements, we have information sessions designed specifically to assist students with the admissions process.  The information sessions for the Dental Assisting, Dental Hygiene, Nursing, Radiography, and Medical Sonography programs are mandatory; students must complete the program-specific information session before meeting with an Admissions and Academic Advisor. All information sessions are currently online.
