Application Requirements


All applicants must meet the general enrollment requirements of Central Carolina Technical College (see College general admissions requirements) as well as all admission requirements for Health Sciences students listed at the beginning of the Health Sciences program section of the catalog.

Licensed Practical Nurses seeking advanced placement into the Associate Degree Nursing program must meet the competitive admission requirements for the Associate Degree Nursing program. The LPN Step Assessment Test is required for advanced placement into the Associate Degree Nursing program and replaces the TEAS V test. Application for admission to the Associate Degree Nursing program is based on a Competitive Admisson Process; therefore, meeting the minimum admission criteria does not guarantee an applicant admission to the Associate Degree Nursing program.

  • Graduate of an accredited high school or possess a General Education Development (GED) certificate.
  • The Central Carolina Technical College registrar must have receipt of all official transcripts (including high school and all regionally accredited institutions) two weeks prior to the admission deadline.
  • Completion and grade of "C" or higher in BIO 210 (Anatomy and Physiology I), BIO 211 (Anatomy and Physiology II), and MAT 101 (Beginning Algebra) or MAT 110 (College Algebra) or MAT 120 (Probability and Statistics) within the past ten (10) years.
