The Pre-allied Health certificate consists of general education coursework for pre-nursing and pre-allied health programs and provides an opportunity for students to achieve recognition in the form of a certificate upon successful completion of this coursework. This certificate also encompasses the general education coursework required for the Associate of Applied Science degree including the Anatomy and Physiology series.

Enrollment in courses within the Pre-allied Health Academic Certificate program requires demonstrated competency in English composition, reading, and mathematics.
