Frequently Asked Questions

What will students learn if they study Allied Health Pre-Professional?

Students will have a strong core of sciences and general education electives to meet the requirements for a degree and/or a certificate. Students will be able to select courses with the assistance of an advisor in their area of interest.

Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major?

Algebra 1 is a prerequisite for all majors. Algebra 1 competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or completion of the appropriate course. Students considering nursing must have a “B” or better in high school biology and chemistry both with a lab. Students considering all other allied health fields must have a “C” or better in high school biology and chemistry both with a lab. There may be additional requirements that are required depending on the major chosen.

Can students who major in Allied Health Pre-professional transfer to a four-year college or university?

The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all of the lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements with private institutions may provide similar transfer provisions. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.

How long will it take to complete this degree?

Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the certificate can be completed in one year of full-time study and the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.
