4. PTA Program candidates who have submitted a completed portfolio are then scheduled by the Program Director for a personal interview with the Program Admissions Panel. An interview will not be scheduled without a completed portfolio having been submitted. Interviews will be held on a date to be announced.
5. Final selection of the Program class and alternates is made following the interviews.
6. Selected candidates are then enrolled in a 2 week online class to introduce them to the College and to confirm that they have the skills and competencies needed to succeed in online classes.
7. After selection candidates return to the College to sign all required disclosures and an enrollment agreement for admission to the College and the PTA Program.
8. Mandatory orientation meetings are held on campus for all accepted PTA Program students (including alternates) on Monday and Tuesday approximately 1-2 weeks before the scheduled start of the Program. At this time, students will receive and review the PTA Student Handbook, receive required Federal Entrance Student Loan Counseling, and receive CPR and healthcare fire safety training. Students who do not attend the entire orientation will lose their seat in the Program to the next alternate.
