Admissions Requirements

The non-degree certification program in Healthcare Science Technology Education allows individuals from specific areas of industry, business, or health to enter the teaching profession based on occupational experience and the minimum education level required for the field.

Goals

Students seeking healthcare science education (or career and technical specializations) certification must pass or exempt the GACE Program Admission Assessment within three years of program admission or prior to program completion, whichever occurs first. All students must take Georgia Educator Ethics – Program Entry (350) Assessment for program admission and pass the Georgia Educator Ethics – Program Exit (360) Assessment for program completion. Successful completion of the approved program courses qualifies a person for either a second induction or professional certificate, depending upon the current level of certification. Students are admitted through a special application process once a year in summer session; they may take these courses either as non-degree or degree-seeking students. Classes offered in fall and spring are available in a synchronous online format.
