Special Admissions Requirements for Program Applicants
Nursing & Health Science Admissions Packets:
Admissions requirements are obtained by attending a Health Information Program (HIP). All applicants are required to attend a program as part of the admissions process. (Online HIP sessions are available for those unable to attend in person.) Due to the limited availability of slots in these programs, admission is competitive. Applicants are advised to apply early. OCtech seeks to identify students who can achieve at an appropriate level in the curriculum and diversity among its student population.

You can register for upcoming HIP sessions here.
If you choose to attend online, please read the instructions carefully! (For PN to ADN session, please use this link - currently unavailable.)
Important Session Reminders
- Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the session in Building S - Student Services lobby. No appointment needed.
- Be on time! No one is allowed in once the session begins. If you are late, you must attend another session in order to receive your application packet. If you are coming from out of town, please expect traffic delays. We cannot permit entrance because of traffic delays.

- Allow 2 hours for the session.
Packets are only accepted from 8 am-4 pm Monday-Thursday. Packets are not accepted on Fridays due to limited staff. APPLY EARLY!
