The intent of Southside College of Health Sciences (SCHS) is to offer educational opportunities in the health science field to anyone who has the interest, desire and ability to pursue a health care program offered by the College. The College asks for a wide range of information in order to evaluate applicants. The College seeks applicants for its programs who demonstrate qualities of scholarship, responsibility, accountability, motivation and commitment to academic and personal growth. Specific entrance requirements vary for individual programs.

Admission is competitive with specific standards for each program of study. SCHS reserves the right to deny admission or readmission to any applicant if his or her admission is not considered in the best interest of the applicant or College. The College does not offer development courses for remedial studies.  All materials submitted for the application process become the property of the College and cannot be returned or forwarded.

It is incumbent upon the applicant to provide accurate and truthful information. Falsification of an application or communicating any false information at any point during the admissions process will result in acceptance being revoked or the student being dismissed if already admitted. Application may be made for the next class offering. A new application fee will be charged.  Equal opportunity for admission is offered to applicants without regard to age, race, religion, ancestry, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, national origin or legally protected classifications.
