The college has a number of selective admission programs, outlined on the following pages. Selection for these programs is very competitive and a student’s past and potential educational achievement is measured against all other students applying. Students are strongly advised to not apply to more than one selective program per term of desired entry. For students in need of guidance determining their career path, the college offers a number of career exploration opportunities.
Students meeting all of the minimum requirements for admission are not guaranteed acceptance to the selective program of their intent. Students are encouraged to enter the college as a General Studies track (appropriate to their intended selective program) student to complete the courses needed for consideration. Admission to MWCC’s selective programs requires additional application components and must be evaluated for acceptance by the admission committee for that program. Space is limited, the process is competitive, and not all applicants will be granted admission. Additional consideration is given to current MWCC students. In addition to all prerequisites required for consideration, the admission committee reviews any additional academic coursework completed as well as the applicant’s work experience. Program applications displaying all deadlines and program requirements are available in the Admissions Office/ Enrollment Center, or on our website at www.mwcc.edu
Applicants must submit all official documentation and demonstrate minimum requirements for consideration by the posted deadline to be considered for acceptance. Coursework in progress at time of deadline will not be used to meet minimum requirements. The admissions office/Enrollment Center must receive all items no later than 5:30 p.m. on the posted deadline date (4:00 p.m. if deadline falls on a Friday). If the deadline falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a Holiday, the deadline will be the close of business on the next business day. Completed applications received after the deadlines may be reviewed on a rolling basis if seats remain available. The college may return completed applications received after the posted deadline without review.
All applicants will be notified of the admission decision by mail approximately 60 days following the application deadline. If selected for admission, students will be required to submit a non-refundable, $75.00 deposit with their confirmation of acceptance. Students admitted to selective programs, must attend a mandatory orientation/welcome session prior to the start of classes. No exceptions will be made. Proof of immunization will be required if an applicant is accepted and must be received prior to class registration. Applicants should refer to the program application form for a list of these requirements. Students previously convicted of a felony may not be eligible for professional licensure or placement in clinical settings.
