Health Program Petition Process | Northcentral Technical College

Health Program Petition Process

We use a competitive admissions process for five different health programs: Dental Hygienist, Nursing, Radiography, and Surgical Technologist. The petition process is how you gain acceptance into the core classes for these health programs. Petitioning happens only during specific times during the year, but applications are accepted for programs with petition requirements at any time. When you are ready to get started in program specific courses and have met petition eligibility requirements, you will submit a petition and follow the process for your program to determine admittance to program classes.
