• Application Information


  • Prior to applying it is very important that you read through the application and admissions criteria found in the Admission Details section. It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to be informed of requirements as criteria can change from year to year

    Accommodations - The application must be hand signed and submitted along with supporting documents and payment to Mt. Hood Community College’s Admissions, Registration and Records Office, 26000 SE Stark St, Gresham OR 97030. People requiring accommodations due to disability should contact Accessible Education Services at 503-491-6923 or dsoweb@mhcc.edu.

    Admission of all students is centralized in the Admissions, Registration and Records office. Admission to the College does not guarantee admission to the Advanced Placement RN program. The Admissions, Registration and Records office has the final authority on what constitutes equivalency for all admission criteria and has the sole authority to inform students of their admission status.

    If you have questions regarding the admission requirements and procedures, please email LRadmissions@mhcc.edu.

    Reasons for Admission Disqualification - Withholding information or giving untruthful answers to questions on the program application could be cause for non-acceptance or dismissal from the program. Students who were admitted and then failed a required course or were dismissed from the program or any other health related program may be denied admission into the program.

    Application Reopen Disclosure - In the event of an insufficient applicant pool, applicants that have already gone through the interview process (within the same application year) are not allowed to reapply should the program reopen. Applicants may reapply during the application cycle for the following year.

    Previous Admission - Applicants who were previously accepted into the program and then declined acceptance or withdrew may not be given priority consideration in subsequent applications. Individuals will need to re-apply to the program and will be required to meet the current program admission requirements and program standards. Materials cannot be brought forward from previous applications for a current application. Updated official transcripts are required only if new courses have been taken.
