Austin Community College’s Surgical Technology Program has opened Fall 2019 admissions to include students who are currently in the process of completing prerequisite courses.
Qualified applicants are students who have completed or who are currently enrolled for Spring 2019 in the following 4 prerequisite courses:
- BIOL 2401 Anatomy & Physiology I (or Human Anatomy)
- BIOL 2402 Anatomy & Physiology II (or Human Physiology)
- BIOL 2420: Microbiology
- HPRS 2300: Pharmacology
And the remaining 2 prerequisite courses must be completed by the end of the Summer 2019 semester:
- 3‐credit hour College Level Math Course (MATH 1333 not accepted)
- HPRS 1106 or HPRS 1206: Medical Terminology
All courses must be completed with a grade of “C” or better to qualify.
Qualified applicants are encouraged to apply now! The conditional admission applies to the Fall 2019 semester only and applies to the first students meeting the requirements, since the program is filled on a first come first served basis. Applications will be reviewed and, if approved, acceptance will be “provisional” and on the condition they successfully complete (grade “C” or better) the 6 prerequisite courses within the time frames outlined above. Failure to do so will
result in the application being denied.
In addition to completing prerequisites, applicants must upload necessary documents to an online CastleBranch account. Required documents include proof of immunizations, the verification page indicating completion
of a mandatory online information session for Surgical Technology students, and a TEAS test score (no minimum score required). Please visit the Surgical Technology Application Process page for step‐by‐step instructions.
The program offers an Associate of Applied Science degree and a certificate. The program courses are completed in 3 semesters. More information can be found at the Surgical Technology website.
