Centralized Application Services

Many health professions programs utilize a centralized application service that provides standardized information to individual schools from a single form you complete. These web-based portals operate as a “common app” and process your application, including transcript verification, and forward it on to the individual schools to which you apply.

Be sure to carefully read and follow all instructions. All application services require a processing fee, plus additional fees for each school to which you wish to send you application. Fee assistance waivers are available based on financial need.

Centralized application portals are provided below. Please note there are some career fields for which you will need to apply through individual school websites.
