(Full-time)

Degree:
Division:

Health Sciences degree programs consist of open enrollment courses (general education and division specific) and program specific courses with limited enrollment. The open enrollment courses may be taken prior to entry into the limited enrollment courses. The limited enrollment courses are offered during the technical portion of the program that includes clinical, practicum, or professional practice experience. The technical section of a program has restrictions on the number of students that may start the limited enrollment courses each term (or year), based on space availability and accreditor guidelines, for example, objective quantitative factors. As a result of this limited class size, there may be a waiting period between completion of the prerequisites and other program requirements for entry into the limited enrollment courses, and the start of those courses. Some programs have instituted a competitive selection process for entry to the limited enrollment/restricted courses. To qualify for entry to limited enrollment courses, please see the Applicant Information packet found on the Health Sciences webpage: http://www.sinclair.edu/academics/divisions/hs/

This Sample Program Pathway is designed to provide an example of course selections in a term by term sequence. Please see an Academic Advisor for a plan specific to your academic needs.
