Once the application period is closed, the Surgical Technology Program Director and Faculty will review all submissions and contact each selected applicant for a program interview. The top 20 applicants will be invited for an interview. Incomplete application packets, and application packets and Verified Credentials requirements not submitted by the deadline, will not be processed.
Application evaluations use a point system with a standard rubric to select candidates based on satisfying entrance requirements with the testing center, the essay and the interview, and complete application packet requirements.
The top 20 applicants selected by the program faculty will be contacted for a program director’s interview. 16 applicants with the highest overall scores following the interviews will then be offered seats in the program. The Surgical Technology Program Director and faculty reserve the right to interview additional qualified applicants if the initial interviewees do not meet minimum standards. When additional clinical externship facility slots are secured, additional seats may be available.
