The Medical Assisting Program does not have required prerequisite courses, however the pre-enrollment clinical requirements outlined below must be met prior to enrollment.

​Firstly, complete and submit the Part 1 Pre-Enrollment Packet.  Upon completion of the Part 1 Packet, students will be added to the class working list based on the date their completed packet was submitted to the Health Sciences office. Students on the list will be offered a program invitation to enroll in the class on a first come, first served basis until all class spots have been filled. Part 1 Packets can be submitted at any time during the year. Once a complete Part 1 packet has been received, students will receive registration information.

Those who have received a class invitation will be contacted by the Health Sciences office via email with directions to complete their Part 2 Pre-Enrollment Packet. A majority of the Part 2 Pre-Enrollment Packet are time-sensitive and should not be completed until directed to do so by the Health Sciences office.
