Many of the health programs require a mandatory criminal history check and drug screening on all students prior to starting the clinical portion of a program. Conviction of a felony or misdemeanor will preclude eligibility on admission to the clinical portion of these programs. It is the student's responsibility to check a program's guidelines to determine if this is a requirement.

 Admission Exam Requirement

The Nursing, Respiratory Therapy, and Diagnostic Medical Sonography programs require an admission exam. This exam is administered at the Auburn Hills campus.
