The nature of the selection process for any Selective Admissions program at Bluegrass Community and Technical College is a competitive process. All applicants meeting the appropriate academic requirements shall be considered equally for admission regardless of economic or social status, race, color, religion, sex, marital status, beliefs, age, national origin, sexual orientation, or physical or mental disability.
The Surgical Technology program is a selective admission health program. The purpose of the selective admissions process is to create a ranking system that allows us to identify students who are most likely to succeed in Surgical Technology Program. This system has been adopted to increase pass rates, meet accreditation standards, eliminate waiting list and to promote student success. This ranking will be used to create a priority admissions list, not an exclusion list. Therefore, all students are eligible to apply to the Surgical Technology program and be ranked by the selective admission criteria.
The first phase of the selective admission process:
The process for applying is a “Complete Application Packet” format. Students must submit all documents below in one envelope to be considered for the program. Even if you have applied before and/or are currently enrolled, we will need all documents resubmitted to one of several locations: The Office of Admissions (Cooper Campus) 119 Oswald Building or The One Stop Student Service Center (Leestown Campus), Building C by the application deadline. Only complete packets will be processed and considered for the program.
The second phase of the selective admission process is accomplished with a point system that ranks students according to points earned in the following areas:
*If a student completes a per-requisite(s) via a Bypass Exam, no points will be awarded in the selective admission process. This is due to the fact Bypass Exam are not being graded like other classes and are evaluated on a pass/fail format.
As a result of the selective admission score, the top 18 students are accepted into the program. In the event that two or more students have the same point total with only one remaining opening in the program, the tie will be broken using cumulative GPA. BCTC will notify students that are accepted upon the completion of the selective admissions process.
