Admissions Requirements

Prospective cardiovascular sonography students are selected by The Committee on Admissions (COA) through consideration of the overall qualities of the candidate. Individuals with diverse education, work, and life experience who have demonstrated the capacity to pursue the course of cardiovascular sonography will be admitted. Areas of consideration include application content, academic record, letters of evaluation and personal motivation. Upon receipt of the completed application, the COA will select applicants for interview. Applicants must be present for the interview (phone interviews are not acceptable) and expenses are the responsibility of the applicant.

It should be noted that many criteria, in addition to credentials, play a role in the admission process for the program. While the program allows the student to demonstrate academic capability, it does not ensure admission to any professional school. Admission to the cardiovascular sonography program will not guarantee admission to any other program of Nova Southeastern University.

Upon receipt of the completed application, fees, credentials, transcripts, the admissions officers and the College of Health Care Sciences will review all material for evidence of the proper education, training, and background to enter the cardiovascular sonography course of study.
