When scheduling or while in the admission courses, keep the following in mind:
- Plan when you will take your admission courses taking into consideration that some of the courses have prerequisite or co-requisite requirements or may be offered only once a year. DMS 1320, Introduction to Scanning is only offered in Spring semester due to lab availability.
- Enrollment in DMS 1320 is by departmental approval only. Students will receive departmental approval upon successful completion of DMS 1303 and DMS 1071.
- Biology and Math requirements should be scheduled early in your course plan; delaying them delays your application from being complete.
- Health Career programs do not accept Pass/No Pass grades for admission courses taken at Tri-C.
- A letter grade of "C" or better must be achieved.
- Only a maximum of two repeats to improve from a previous attempt(s) are permitted. Students may repeat one admission course twice OR two admission courses once to improve the admission GPA requirement. A "W" is counted as a repeat.
- Admission GPAs calculated using only the Tri-C specific admission course credit hours listed.
- Minimum 3.0 GPA for DMS 1303, DMS 1320 and DMS 1071 (total five credits)
- Minimum 3.0 GPA for BIO 2331 and BIO 2341 (total eight credits)
- If you transferred in college courses, such as English, math, physics, psychology, or anatomy and physiology, you will need an override to register for the some of the admission courses. Contact a counselor or program director to request the override; provide them your Tri-C student ID number and the course section number (CRN).
- There are no time limits for required courses; due to their importance, the course content is built upon (not reviewed) in the remaining Program courses.
- Minimum Tri-C cumulative GPA of 2.4 must be maintained during the entire length of the program.
- Complete the online DMS application.
ALL applicants must apply for the DMS Program through the online system. Do not submit an application to the Health Career Enrollment Center.
You can apply once you have successfully completed all required program admission courses with the required program GPA. Only students who have completed all the program admission courses and obtained the associated GPAs will be accepted to the DMS program.
