The MA program will be offered on both campuses (Wenatchee & Omak) for students applying to the fall-start 2013 cohort.
All applicants will be notified by late July.
Acceptance to Wentachee Valley College (WVC) does not guarantee admission into the MA program.
Students must be 18 years of age or older before entering clinical education.
Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Students who wish to review their application and/or prerequisites should schedule an appointment with the Educational Planner for Allied Health early (509.682.6830). No appointments to review applications will be scheduled during the two week window when applications are due.
Complete the WVC Application. Current WVC students (those taking classes spring quarter) do not need to reapply.
Attach sealed, official college transcripts from ALL colleges where you have earned credit (excluding WVC).
Complete all prerequisites by the end of spring quarter with a "C" (2.0) or higher.
Attach an unofficial transcript showing spring grades (only if your updated official transcript showing spring grades will not be available by June 21).
Attach a copy of your current Basic First Aid card.
Attach a copy of your current Healthcare Provider CPR card.

Attend an information session.
Every fall, winter, and spring quarter, two information sessions will be offered. One session will be offered via ITV on Omak's campus.

Students may request an official Credit Evaluation. This step usually takes a few weeks to complete.
Selection of applicants for the MA program is based on cumulative GPA. Students with the highest cumulative GPA are admitted.
On-the-job physical requirements include: ability to lift 50 pounds, carry 20 pounds, sit for 4 hours, and stand for 8-12 hours.
Conviction of certain crimes may prevent completion of the clinical course requirements of the program and may prevent future licensure and employment in health care. A criminal record check is required prior to any clinical training experience or clinical field trips. Students with a criminal record should meet with the Associate Dean of Allied Health/Nursing Administrator to determine if the criminal history would prevent access to a health care facility. To determine if the criminal record would prevent eligibility to take the national exam, visit the AAMA website (www.aama-ntl.org) and download information from the "ethics" section.
Successful applicants will receive an acceptance letter (by late July) and a packet from the Allied Health Department detailing these next steps. DO NOT include these items with the application.
