*You will be required to provide three references and their email addresses. The DMS Program will send the Reference Form to the references you provide.

The top 20-22 applicants will be invited for an interview.  The interview process is to be determined due to COVID-19. Interview will be conducted during the last full week of March.

Successful applicants will be notified of their conditional acceptance by March 21st via email. Note: As applications for financial aid are due April 1, eligible applicants for aid should apply by April 1 rather than waiting until notification of acceptance.
After conditional acceptance to the DMS program, proof of the following additional requirements must be submitted to the DMS program by the dates stipulated in the acceptance letter:

  • A completed physical examination form including verification of current vaccinations and titers (Hepatitis B, Rubella, Rubeola, PPD, Diphtheria-Tetanus, Varicella).
  • A copy of current certification in “CPR for the Health Care Worker” when classes begin in the fall.
  • Acceptable drug screening and criminal background checks.

At their discretion, clinical sites may require a drug screening and/or criminal background check prior to allowing students into the clinical setting. (If required, any associated fees will be the responsibility of the student.) In addition, clinical sites may require random drug testing and/or drug testing for reasonable cause. Generally, the urine drug test screens for illegal drugs or drugs that impair judgment while in the clinical agency. Testing positive on the screening, or evidence of tampering with a specimen, will disqualify a student from participating in the clinical assignment. In addition to drug screening, for the safety of patients and health care workers, child abuse clearance and criminal background checks are required by some agencies prior to a clinical assignment. Certain criminal activity, as evidenced by a criminal background check, may also disqualify a student from clinical participation. Students are advised that the inability to gain clinical education experiences can result in the inability to meet program objectives and outcomes. These circumstances may prevent final acceptance into and/or progression through the program, and may ultimately result in dismissal from the program.
