The Program Applicant Review and Selection Process
During the next 3-4 weeks after the Program Application Deadline, the Health Sciences Review Committee, comprised of various
Health Sciences Program Directors and faculty, the Dean of Health Sciences, and the Limited Entry Programs Office Staff, will review
all applications submitted by the deadline.
Applicants are ranked using a points system, and candidates will be selected, based on the total points earned. Ties will be
decided, based on the following system: 1) The applicant with the higher total points earned in the “General Education Courses”
ranking section; 2) The applicant with the higher TEAS composite score (if applicable); and 3) The date that the GTCC Admission
Application was submitted for the program of interest.
Each candidate who submits a Health Sciences Program Application to the Limited Entry Programs Office by 5pm on the specified
deadline will be notified in writing of the results of the selection process. Notification will be sent electronically to the applicant’s
GTCC email address.
Students must accept or decline a program position by submitting an Intent to Enroll Form within 10 business days of the date on
the acceptance letter. Failure to respond within the stated timeframe will result in the position being offered to an alternate. Once
a student declines a program position, the decision may not be reversed.
A student has 15 business days from the date on the notification letter to contest the results of the selection process. The request
for review of the results must be submitted in writing to the Division Dean. The Division Dean will render a decision within 10
business days of receipt of the written request. The Division Dean’s decision is final.
Program Orientation, Advising/Registration, and Enrollment
Once a position in a program of study is accepted, the student will then communicate with the Program Director regarding all matters
related to program orientation, advising/registration, and enrollment.
The student is required to attend all program orientations, meetings, or other events scheduled prior to the start of classes. Failure
to attend without prior approval from the Program Director will result in a letter of termination from the Program Director/Division
Dean, and point deductions may apply for future applications to the same program. An alternate may be selected to fill the position,
as decided by the Program Director.
The student must be enrolled in program classes by the first day of the semester. Failure to enroll will result in a letter of
termination from the Program Director/Division Dean. Point deductions may apply for future applications to the same program,
unless the student notifies the Program Director and the Limited Entry Programs Office, in writing, prior to the first day of the
semester. An alternate may be selected to fill the position, as decided by the Program Director.
GTCC Summer 2020 LPN to Associate Degree Nursing Bridge Program Admission Packet Created July 2019 pg. 6
A student who enrolls in first-semester classes for the program and withdraws from the program or is dropped from the program
within that semester must complete the entire program admission process if he/she wishes to apply for a future program entry.
Ranking point deductions may apply for future applications to the same program.
The GTCC Health Sciences Limited Entry Process is not to be regarded as a contract between GTCC and students. GTCC reserves the right to
change any provisions or requirements with adequate notice and minimum disruption to students.
Important Notes to Health Science Program Applicants
Program faculty reserve the right to revise or change course requirements in accordance with applicable state laws, college
requirements, accreditation standards, and/or at the discretion of the faculty. By accepting admission into the program, the
students agrees to at all times abide by the program requirements and procedures as set forth in the Student Handbook and the
respective course syllabus issued at the beginning of each term for each course. The student is bound by such requirements and
procedures regardless of whether they were established before or after the date of enrollment in the program. Changes made after
the publication of the Handbook will be posted as an addendum to the Handbook.
Most programs require students to have a criminal background check, a drug screen, and an OIG review (Office of Inspector General)
upon admission. Healthcare agencies that are utilized for clinical and/or internship experiences require this evaluation. If a student
is denied agency access due to a positive check or screening, the students may not be able to complete the clinical education
experiences, which will result in the inability to continue in the health science program. Screening may also be required after
graduation by examination boards, state licensing boards, and employing agencies. Pending the outcome, a graduate may be
disqualified from examination eligibility, state licensure, and/or employment.
Students must achieve a GPA of 2.0 or better in order to graduate. Students who receive a grade of “D” in a general education
course (other than BIO or CHM) can graduate as long as their GPA is at least 2.0. However, a grade of “D” in a general education
course will not transfer to another institution, nor will GTCC accept a grade of “D” for credit from another institution. Students must
achieve a “C” or better in BIO, CHM, and program major courses. Students who do not achieve a “C” or better in these courses will
be suspended from the program.
(From the Nursing Handbook) Nursing Students who make a grade of “D” or “F” in courses with a prefix of NUR or BIO will be
suspended from the nursing program. Nursing students who do not meet a benchmark in a course will receive a “D” in the course.
