Enroll in a Program

Enrollment in most programs only requires a GED or high school diploma. An entrance test for the LVN program is required to ensure all students that are accepted have a basic understanding of reading and basic math. All other programs do not require an entry test.

An Enrollment Counselor is available to help you navigate the paperwork for enrollment.
