Full Curriculum


Program standards are specific for most of the College of Health Professions degree programs and established so students will be prepared for credentialing examinations offered by professional associations or the state government. Admission to the University does not guarantee admission to all programs in the College of Health Professions.  It is recommended that students planning to pursue programs that have specific admission requirements or students undecided in their program of study start with the following courses. In addition to specific courses, individual programs may have special requirements for the clinical sections of the program which should be considered before pursuing coursework in the specific health professions major.  The student is advised to consult the College of Health Professions Handbook for these requirements. Students are encouraged to meet with their Advisor to discuss program options and specific admission requirements for each degree program.
