What academic preparation is needed for admission consideration?
Applicants to the above listed Health Science programs must have specific academic background in math and sciences, either from high school or at the college level, to be considered for admission.

What is the Competitive Admissions Process?
When can an applicant apply and what is the deadline to complete the application process?
The Admissions Office begins taking applications to the spring and fall semesters on September 15 of the year preceding entry.
For first consideration to the competitive programs beginning in the Fall semester, an application form and all official academic records (transcripts) required by the College must be received in the Admissions Office by March 1. (Incomplete applications will not be considered.) The Admissions Office will begin making early offers of admission to a select number of highly qualified applicants after the March 1 deadline. Applications received or completed after March 1 will be considered if a specific program remains open.
For first consideration to the Clinical Laboratory Technician A.A.S program or the Histological Technician A.A.S. (which admit during with the Spring semester only), an Application Form and all official academic transcripts required by the College must be received in the Admissions Office by October 25. Applications to these programs will still be considered after this deadline on a rolling admissions basis until the first week of January should space still be available.
For admission consideration to the Nursing: Evening-Weekend A.A.S. program, an Application Form and all official academic transcripts required by the College must be received in the Admissions Office by October 25.

What if an applicant does not have the necessary academic preparation for admission consideration or is not admitted through the competitive admissions process?
Health Science applicants who do not have the necessary academic preparation for admission consideration or who are not admitted through the competitive admissions process, may enroll in preparatory courses to meet entrance requirements or to strengthen their academic background for future admission consideration via our Health Studies Program. However, students who choose this option will still need to go through the competitive admissions process. Completion of preparatory coursework does not guarantee future admission to a Health Science program.
Advisement is available to assist students in selecting appropriate preparatory coursework and planning a timetable for future admission consideration. Applicants may also choose other degree or certificate programs offered at SUNY Broome Community College. Career counseling is also available to students who wish to explore other career options. Call the Admissions Office to discuss these options at +1 (607) 778-5001.
