Admissions Policy for Competitive Enrollment Programs | Pierpont C&TC

Competitive programs requiring separate applications are listed below. The program application, $20 nonrefundable application fee, high school transcript/GED scores, ACT/SAT/ COMPASS scores (Physical Therapist Assistant and Radiologic Technology do not accept COMPASS), college transcript (if applicable), and any other required information must be on file by the deadline listed on the program application.

The credentials are collected by the Office of Admissions and are submitted to the appropriate selection committee for consideration. Any application received after that date will be considered only on a space-available basis. All applicants are notified by letter concerning their admission status to the program. Selection criteria are based primarily on academic background with some flexibility concerning life experience and training. Strong mathematics and science background is highly recommended. Consideration will be given to students who have successfully completed college course work. Students with a college cumulative grade point average of less than 2.0 must remedy this situation before they can be eligible for admission to the programs. Students who have completed a GED must show evidence of successful completion of required prerequisite courses.
