After program acceptance and prior to the first class day, the student must submit a completed physical examination which includes the complete Hepatitis B series, a current college transcript.

Prior to beginning clinicals, the student must pass a background check and drug screen test, at student's expense, for security clearance and continued enrollment in the program.
