What are the benefits?
Credit for previous study in a specific discipline can be awarded. Students who are a non-degree certified or licensed allied health practitioner or graduate of a certificate or diploma program may be able to earn valuable credits toward a college degree.

What are the requirements for admission to the Health Science program?
Students in the Health Science program must have non-degree certification or licensure in an allied health field. Full- or part-time study is available.

Can students receive credit for previous Allied Health training?
After successful completion of the general education requirements with a GPA of 2.0 or higher, students must submit an original post-secondary school transcript and a current license or certificate as part of the process. The number of credits awarded will be based upon an evaluation of the candidate’s prior training and licensure or certification. The director of Health Technology programs and the dean of Science, Mathematics and Health Technologies will conduct the review.

Can students who major in Health Science transfer to a four-year college?
Articulation agreements with public and private institutions offer students who earn the A.A.S. degree the opportunity to transfer all of their coursework to the four-year institution. Students in specialized programs, or who earn an A.A.S. degree should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.

What are the employment opportunities for graduates?
Graduates of Health Science programs have chosen to work in hospital laboratories, private or reference laboratories, pharmaceutical companies, the insurance industry, doctor’s offices, HMO’s and clinics, veterinarian hospitals, assisted living facilities, long-term care facilities, research and sales. Graduates may use this degree for career advancement or change, to enhance job security, or to satisfy personal fulfillment.

Transfer Information

Our students transfer to 4-year colleges and universities around the globe. We’ve had students transfer to every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.

The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements are being worked out with institutions granting baccalaureate degrees in Public Health to facilitate the transfer process. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.
