Note: Arrests, charges or convictions of criminal offenses may be cause to deny or limit licensure or employment opportunities in specific careers and occupations (including massage therapy) and may limit a student's ability to obtain federal, state and other financial aid.
Students are encouraged to investigate these possibilities before applying to the Massage Therapy program.
Apply for Admission to Cuyahoga Community College

- Students who have not completed college-level English or math courses must take English and math placement tests at the Testing and Assessment Center. Qualifying ACT scores may be submitted in lieu of placement testing.
- Please submit official high school (or equivalent GED, TASC or HiSET) and college transcripts as required to the registrar's office.
Post-Degree Professional Certificate candidates are required to send their college transcript to the Registrar's office to prove eligibility for the Post-Degree program.
Admission to Tri-C does not automatically admit a student to restricted programs such as the Massage Therapy program.
It is strongly recommended that you read the Massage Therapy Program Application Guidelines prior to completing the Massage Therapy application.
