Health Science Program Acceptance Requirements
We are here to help! Please reach out to the Health Sciences team with your questions.
Thank you for your interest in one of Wake Tech's Health Science programs. Our programs provide the knowledge and skills for challenging and rewarding careers in hospitals, labs, physician practices, nursing homes and other health care settings.
Our programs are highly regarded and extremely popular. Some use a first-come, first-served process while others use a competitive process to determine entry into clinical classes. Students are encouraged to apply early so they can complete any classes needed to fulfill admissions requirements before the program-specific application deadlines.
Please review the information on this site to learn more about the programs offered, program-specific acceptance requirements, and separate program applications. Grades of "C" or better are required in all Health Science program-related curriculum classes (except for Human Services and Health & Fitness Science).
Since Wake Tech’s Health Science programs have program-specific acceptance requirements, information sessions are designed specifically to review and explain the process required to apply to a Health Science program. The 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.
