College-level credit will be transferred as a block; technical school or other certificate credits will be weighted and then awarded as a block. Credits may be awarded from professional programs in fields such as: Dental Assisting, Dental Hygiene, Dietary Management, LPN, Massage Therapy, Military Medic, Nursing, Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiography, Respiratory Care, Ultrasound,Vision Care Technology and/or any accredited or state-licensed post-high school health science training program, which is licensed or certified by examination.


If the Major Course Requirement credits awarded from a professional education program total less than 24 credits, the balance may be chosen from the list, which are all 3- or 4-credit courses. Keep in mind that the number of credits of Additional Course Requirements plus the number of credits awarded toward Major Course Requirement credits must total 24 credits.

  •  ECC students who completed college-level course work in Dental Assisting, Dental Hygiene, Dietary Manager, Massage Therapy, LPN, Nursing, Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiography, Respiratory Care, and Vision Care Technology programs but who did not complete a specific degree many apply their professional credits toward the Health Science degree.
  • Students may not earn two degrees in the same discipline.
  • The minimum passing grade for all program-related courses is “C”. If you earn a grade below “C”, you need to repeat that course.
  • Please meet with a Division of Health Sciences academic advisor (faculty member) to receive evaluation of professional education program credits. (Up to 24 credits may be awarded toward the Major Course Requirements.)
