Selective Admission

Admission to individual Healthcare Professions programs is selective with the number of students admitted based on facility constraints. Admission to LIT does not guarantee admission to specific programs. Each program utilizes a competitive and selective admissions process to choose the most qualified applicants.

Selection of Applicants is Based On

  1. Overall college GPA

  3. Number of Repeated courses
  4. TEAS Scores
  5. Completion of additional health professions courses and co-requisite courses within the degree plan.

Incomplete/Late Applications

Incomplete applications or applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered. Admission information is subject to change and is not a contract.

Conditional Acceptance

Acceptance into Health Professions Programs is conditional, pending completion of all required documentation by the stated deadline:

  • immunizations
  • health history and physical
  • satisfactory criminal background check
Conditional acceptance to a Healthcare Professions program is forfeited if requirements are not submitted by the stated deadline.

  1. Physical and Immunizations: Healthcare Professions students must complete an annual physical and provide record of the following immunizations before providing direct patient care. If records are not available, immunity can be confirmed by serologic testing.
    • Documented history of varicella disease or received varicella immunization (2 doses)
    • Two doses of measles-containing vaccine, preferably the MMR vaccine
    • Tetanus vaccine within the past ten (10) years
    • Hepatitis B vaccine series
    • Documented current tuberculin skin test that is negative for Tuberculosis or TB questionnaire and clearance of chest x-ray in accordance with CDC policy (refer to Healthcare Program deadline for completion).
  2. Health History and Physical: The Healthcare Professions program will provide the Health History and Physical format required upon acceptance.
  3. Criminal Background Screening: The Joint Commission requires Clinical Affiliates of LIT to ensure that healthcare providers having contact with patients are free of any past or present criminal behavior that might jeopardize the welfare of the patient or personnel.

All applicants must submit to a Criminal Background screening via Castlebranch, a background check service that allows students to purchase their own background check. This screening must be completed after acceptance to the program, but before beginning healthcare professions classes. Results of the background check are posted on the website in a secure, tamper-proof environment, where the student, as well as LIT can view the background check. The committee will access the records online; therefore, students are not required to submit a paper copy of the background check.

The clinical agencies used by LIT are required by The Joint Commission to ensure that personnel having contact with patients be free of any past or present criminal behavior that might jeopardize the welfare of the patient or personnel.

The following criminal histories will prohibit a student from enrolling in any of our healthcare professions clinical courses.

  1. Misdemeanor conviction/deferred adjudication or felony conviction/deferred adjudication involving crimes against persons (physical or sexual abuse).
  2. Misdemeanor convictions/deferred adjudication related to normal turpitude (prostitution, public lewdness/exposures, etc.).
  3. Felony convictions/deferred adjudication for the sale, possession, distribution, or transfer of narcotics or controlled substances.
  4. Registered sex offenders.
  5. Healthcare professions programs also adhere to State Legislation that may hinder someone from working in the Healthcare industry.

Note: Students not accepted into one of the programs must submit a new application for consideration for admission the following year. If the student has taken additional courses, they will also need to submit new transcripts with the new application.
