designated deadline. Conditional acceptance candidates who do not meet this deadline will not be considered for
admission and the next person on the list will be contacted.
o Wait List: In the event there are more qualified applicants than seats available, qualified applicants not initially
conditionally accepted will be placed on the wait list in rank order and notified of selection if and when seats
become available. Qualified out-of-county applicants will be placed at the end of the wait list.

IM
PORTANT INFORMATION
1. Direct all inquiries regarding the application process to Health Sciences Admissions Office via email at
ramanning@aacc.edu
. Following review of all applications, students will receive a letter regarding the status of their
application.
2. All Health Sciences students who are offered admission and/or clinical placement will be required to submit to a
complete criminal background check and urine drug screen. All student applicants’ final acceptance in the program
shall be contingent upon satisfactory completion of a criminal background check and of a urine drug screen.*
All letters of acceptance shall state that the acceptance is conditional and contingent on submission to a criminal
background check and urine drug screenas may be required by the program--that results in satisfactory reports. If
an accepted student tests positive for an illegal or un-prescribed drug, the student shall be denied admission or
terminated from any Health Sciences program.
Separate, additional criminal background checks and urine drug screens may be required by clinical sites prior to
placements. Students with an unsuccessful background check or urine screening who are denied by a clinical site
that is required to meet program competencies shall be dismissed from the program and their registrations shall be
withdrawn from courses related to the program of study. If the student tests positive for an illegal or un-prescribed
drug, the student shall be denied admission or terminated from any Health Sciences program even if a denied
placement was not required to meet program competencies. Successful reports of criminal background checks and
urine drug screens do not assure eligibility for specific clinical site placement, program completion, and/or eligibility
to sit for professional licensure/board examinations.
Students are reminded that licensing boards for certain health care occupations and professions may deny,
suspend, or revoke a license or may deny the individual the opportunity to sit for an examination even if the
individual has completed all program course work if it is determined that an applicant has a criminal history or has
been convicted of, or pleads guilty, or pleads nolo contendere or the like to a felony or other serious crime.
Successful completion of a Health Sciences program of study at Anne Arundel Community College does not
guarantee licensure, the opportunity to sit for a licensure examination, certification or employment in the relevant
health care occupation.
Students may be automatically denied admission or, if enrolled, dismissed from the program if they have not been
truthful or have provided inaccurate information on the application or on any other form or submission. Students
who have questions or concerns are encouraged to contact the Health Sciences Admissions Office at
healthsciencesadmissions@aacc.edu.
* Notwithstanding the statements herein regarding urine drug screens, as of September 2010, only certain
programs will be requiring drug screening. AACC shall inform students which programs presently require
them. However, AACC, at any time, has the right, upon notice, to require any and all students in any and all
programs to comply with drug screening.
S
tudents who have been convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor may not be eligible for licensure as a practical
nurse. These students are required to contact the Maryland Board of Nursing at (410) 585-1900 for more
information.
