The AS with Emphasis in Allied Health/Pre-Professional Programs provides a course of study for those students interested in careers in a variety of healthcare professions. This option is designed for highly motivated students who have a strong interest in graduate training beyond a bachelor’s degree or health-related professional studies such as physical or occupational therapy, exercise science, athletic training, pharmacy, or medicine. As undergraduate degree and professional program admissions requirements vary, students should work closely with their academic advisor to select electives or request substitutions where appropriate. Students are strongly encouraged to identify a program and transfer school of interest early in their academic career to better inform the advising, course selection, and transfer process. ent.
Miles Community College subscribes to the philosophy of a comprehensive community college, including an “open door” admissions policy designed to encourage all adults to continue their education.
The commitment to an open door admissions policy is defined as providing all eligible students with access to an appropriate educational offering at the College. Anyone over the age of 18 is admitted to the College if they have a high school diploma, GED, or satisfactory ACCUPLACER scores; but the College reserves the right to guide students into the courses and programs that will enhance their opportunities for success.
Admission to the College does not necessarily imply eligibility to enroll in a course with established prerequisites (See Course Descriptions starting on page 84) or to enter a program that has a limited number of spaces and minimum entrance requirements. ACCUPLACER and ACT/SAT test scores are used to help place students in appropriate level courses.
