Most of our Health Sciences programs have special admission requirements. Admission to Pasadena City College does not guarantee admission to these particular programs. You must apply and be accepted to the program in order to begin taking classes. In addition to applying to the programs many programs require completion of a criminal background check and toxicology screening tests to be eligible to participate in our laboratories and within our clinical affiliate sites. For specific information please review the program description home page or contact the Health Science office.
