Allen School of Health Sciences is a selective school. We do not accept everyone into our certificate programs. We expect our students to be just as selective considering it is a long term partnership between the student and institution. Allen School of Health Sciences has already shared the Five Qualities of Prospective Medical Assisting Students in a previous blog post. Today we are turning the tables and sharing what homework prospective students should be doing before selecting the right Medical Assistant training program.
- Accreditation – Make sure that every school you consider is accredited. Allen School of Health Sciences is nationally accredited by the Council on Occupational Education (COE). Also, licensed by the New York State Department of Education and Arizona State Board for Private Post-Secondary Education.
- Speak with an Enrollment Advisor – All of our campuses have knowledgeable Enrollment Advisors. Speak to them to get all your questions answered. For example, degree vs certificate and employment outlook.
- Class Schedule – Punctually and attendance are important for student success. Before starting a program ensure that your work schedule and child care are all secure and properly align with your program schedule.
- Affordability – Learn what the cost is and speak with a Financial Aid Advisor to discuss what you potentially qualify for in federal aid.
