The Cardiovascular Technology (CVT) Program is a limited admission program accepting one cohort annually.  Prospective students, who meet program requirements, must submit the completed program application by the April 30 Application Deadline.  Incomplete applications will not be accepted or reviewed by the selection committee.  Please note:  Students enrolled in program pre-requisites, during spring term, may still apply by the program for the subsequent fall term cohort.

CVT Program Application

A selection committee reviews all applications and ranks students per the CVT Program Point Ranking System.  The simple point ranking system assigns points for Overall College GPA, Pre-requisite Courses Completed, General Education Courses Completed, Relevant Health Care Experience, and Previous Education Completed.  All applicants are ranked based off total points accumulated, with the top thirteen selected into the subsequent cohort; remaining applicants will be ranked as alternates according to total number of points accumulated.  Those not admitted in the program must reapply during the limited admission enrollment the following year.  The program does not add students to a waiting list.

Letters of acceptance will be mailed to students no later than May 15.  The acceptance letter will consist of two pages:

1. “Official Acceptance Letter”  welcoming the student to the CVT Program including the date of the mandatory orientation day in the CVT classroom on the Airside Campus.

2. “Verification of Acceptance Letter”  which the student must complete, sign, and return to the program director no later than May 30.  In addition, students are required to contact the program director, via email or phone, verbally verifying  program acceptance and to receive information for mandatory enrollment in Certified Background ($125.00) which must be completed prior to orientation day. 

Students confirming acceptance into the program, are strongly encouraged to return the Verification of Acceptance Letter  in person to either the program director or Airside advisor.  Students may choose to mail the Verification of Acceptance Letter  to the program directors office; however, the program is not responsible for letters which may be lost, delayed, or arrive past the May 30 deadline.
