Health Sciences Admissions Criteria

Review our health science programs' admissions criteria and follow our health science admissions steps to get started.

Program Admissions Selection Process

Our health science programs are divided into two types: limited-access programs and open-enrollment programs. Applicants for limited-access health science programs are selected based on the strength of the applicant pool to fill limited seats. The higher that a program applicant's grades, GPA, test scores, or other applicable program pre-requisites are, the stronger their application is, the more application points they earn, and the greater their chance is of being selected for program admission. Applicants for open-enrollment health science programs are selected based on the completion of program pre-requisites and there are unlimited seats.

Limited-access programs - Limited seats available, students must meet program pre-requisites upon application, and must apply within the program's application period. Students who are accepted into this program type and accept their offered seat in the program must also complete the required background check, drug screening, medical history, and physical examination specific to the applicable program.

Applications submitted outside the program's prescribed application period will not be accepted.

BC limited-access health science program process

  • Submit Program Application: Upon applying to a Health Science program, a $20 one-time and non-refundable program application fee will be assessed. This fee is additional and separate from the $35 or $75 application fee.
  • Application Evaluation: BC Health Science Admissions staff will evaluate your application and assess your eligibility for the program to which you applied. Program eligibility is determined by the satisfaction of pre-requisites prior to applying, as well as your program application being submitted during the program's application period. Health Science program limited-access applications submitted outside their prescribed application periods will not be considered. The Health Science Admissions team then applies the program's point system to each application. Once program eligibility is confirmed, each criterion for awarding  points within the application is evaluated based on the program's respective point system.
  • Admission Selection Decision: After the program application period closes and program applications are evaluated, BC Health Science Admissions staff will send you an admission selection decision (ACCEPTED or DENIED) to your BC student email within 30 business days (excluding weekends, federal holidays, and other college closure days) after the program application period closes. Applicants are responsible for checking their program application status.
  • Student Seat Decision: If you are accepted into the program, you must communicate with BC staff whether you accept or decline the seat that was offered to you. If you accept it, then you will be sent follow-up information regarding the next steps.
  • Program Paperwork Completion: Students who are accepted into this program type and accept their offered seat in the program must also complete the required background check, drug screening, medical history, and physical examination specific to the applicable program.
  • Program Orientation: Students who are offered a program seat (whether ACCEPTED or ALTERNATE) must attend a mandatory program orientation. These orientations are typically held in person.
  • Course Registration: When the program's department determines that the accepted student is fully compliant with their paperwork (drug screening, background check, immunization, etc.) and the orientation attendance is verified, then the student will receive assistance for course registration.

Eligibility for a BC limited-access program does not guarantee acceptance.

Open-enrollment programs - Unlimited seats available, students must meet program pre-requisites upon application, and may apply at any time.

BC open-enrollment health science program process

  • Submit Program Application: Upon applying to a Health Science program, a $20 one-time and non-refundable program application fee will be assessed. This fee is additional and separate from the $35 or $75 application fee.
  • Application Evaluation: BC Health Science Admissions staff will evaluate your application and assess your eligibility for the program to which you applied. Program eligibility for open-enrollment health science programs is determined by the satisfaction of pre-requisites prior to applying.
  • Admission Selection Decision: If you are determined to be eligible for the program, then you will be admitted into the program and sent a follow-up email regarding course registration to your BC student email.
  • Course Registration: Consult with a BC Career and Technical Education (CTE) Advisor for course registration. Accepted students will be connected to their CTE Advisors for this process.

ACCEPTED: A program-eligible applicant who has been officially offered a seat into a health science program by the Health Science Admissions team. The accepted student is required to communicate that they are accepting their seat and must complete their respective program's paperwork, as established by the program's department.

ALTERNATE (applicable to certain programs): A program-eligible applicant who was neither officially accepted nor denied entry into a health science program by the Health Science Admissions team. An alternate student is one who was not placed among the top-scoring applicants for the applicable limited-access program and offered an alternate seat. Alternate students are still expected to attend program orientations and review the  program's required paperwork. However, alternate students should NOT complete any program paperwork until they are officially offered a seat in their respective program (ACCEPTED). In the event that a top-scoring ACCEPTED candidate is unable to continue in their respective program, the next top-scoring alternate will be officially offered a seat into the program (ACCEPTED). The top-scoring alternates are selected by rank until all seats are filled. If an alternate student is offered a seat into the program (ACCEPTED) but declines their offered seat, then the next alternate will be offered the seat until the alternate list is exhausted.

DENIED: A program applicant, who may or may not be eligible for their applied program, that was denied entry into their applied health science program by the Health Science Admissions team. An applicant could be denied program entry due to their application score being lower than the top-scoring ACCEPTED and ALTERNATE applicants for the applicable program cohort (group of applicants). Being denied could also be due to program admission ineligibility or failure to complete program pre-requisites.

WAITLIST: BC Health Science programs do not provide program applicants a WAITLIST option. If an applicant who is not accepted into a limited access program, or is accepted into a limited-access program but declines their seat, wishes to be considered for the next available program, they must apply to the next available program like any other applicant and begin the admissions process again. Previously being selected for admission to a program does not guarantee the applicant will be selected for the next available program, and does not grant the applicant any preference over other applicants. This applicant will be subject to the program's admissions requirements and point system of the current application year.

Each health science limited-access program has their unique point system. These point systems are administered by the health science program offices. Each application for health science limited-access programs is first determined for overall eligibility (based on the completion of required program pre-requisites). The Health Science Admissions team then applies the point system to each application. Once program eligibility is confirmed, each criterion for awarding  points within the application is evaluated based on the program's respective point system.

For example, if a program awards application points based on an applicant's overall GPA, the higher the applicant's overall GPA is, the more application points the applicant is awarded. Each criterion's point scale, as well as tie-breaking criterion in cases of applicants earning the same amount of points, are determined by the program's department. Those with the most application points are given top admissions priority and are selected to fill the limited program seats.

Applicants can review their health science limited-access application evaluation on their myBC student portal under the Records section.

Health Science limited-access program admission selection decisions are administered solely by the Health Science Admissions team. Decisions are communicated to program applicants in their BC student email within 30 business days (excluding weekends, federal holidays, and other college closure days) after the program application period closes.
