Evidence of completion of the 7 specific prerequisite courses with a grade of “C” (2.0) or better in each course.

A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.7, based on the 7 prerequisite classes. All prerequisite courses must have been successfully passed within 2 attempts of taking the course. Attempts count when a letter grade of less than a “C” (2.0) is recorded on a student transcript. Withdrawals (W), or (WI) do not count as an attempt.

Math and Science prerequisites must have been completed within the past 5 years.

TMATH 100 for the Health Services (recommended)
or MATH 95 Intermediate Algebra (or higher)
CHEM& 110 Chemical Concepts w/Lab
or equivalent
ENGL& 101 English Composition I or equivalent5
BIOL& 241* Human Anatomy and Physiology I

*There is an additional prerequisite for BIOL& 241, which is BIOL& 160 (this is a requirement for students attending Tacoma Community College only).

Each grade earned in a prerequisite class will be assigned a certain number of points. For example, an A=4.0, B=3.0, C=2.0, etc. These points will be totaled for every applicant. For this criterion, 7 prerequisite classes would equal a total of 28 possible points. For a more definitive scale, refer to the college catalog.

NEW! For 2019-2020 cohort applicants, Chemistry 110 (Chemical Concepts with Lab or equivalent) wll not be a program pre-requisite course. Pending approval, the Chemistry pre-requisite for 2019 applications (and beyond) will change from Chemistry 110 to Chemistry 121 (Introduction to Inorganic Chemistry).
