NSCC Online Application for Admission

Submit the online application for the year for which you are applying; regardless of whether you are a new or current student (a previously submitted application does not count).

 

Mandatory Information Session Attendance Form

Upcoming dates are available by visiting the Mandatory Information Sessions page. When you attend the orientation, you will be given an attendance form to upload to your application.

 

Communications Proficiency

There are many ways to demonstrate communications proficiency. If you have demonstrated proficiency with your SAT scores or Accuplacer testing from another institution, please upload that document to your application.  If you have demonstrated proficiency with your high school GPA or with college level courses, this will be updated upon review of your submitted materials.

 

Math Proficiency

There are many ways to demonstrate math proficiency. If you have demonstrated proficiency with your SAT scores or Accuplacer testing from another institution, please upload that document to your application.  If you have demonstrated proficiency with your high school GPA or with college level courses, this will be updated upon review of your submitted materials.

 

High School Transcript or GED score report

Upload a copy of your high school transcript or GED score report.  If you previously submitted the transcript or score report and attended classes within the past 5 years, then Enrollment likely has it on file.  You can confirm by emailing: jmuse@northshore.edu

 

Essay

A word-processed essay must be uploaded for the year in which you are applying:

Please state why you would like to pursue a Medical Assisting career and what qualities do you feel would make you a good candidate for our program.

 

Program's Student Handbook

Read the Medical Assisting Student Handbook in its entirety.  By signing the bottom of the page, applicants attest to having done so.  The Student Handbook can also be accessed in the Library on the Lynn or Danvers campus.

 

Official transcripts from all Colleges or Universities previously attended

All official transcripts from previously attended Colleges/Universities must be submitted directly to NSCC and uploaded by Admissions staff.  If the College/University will give an official transcript directly to you, then have them do so but do NOT open the envelope.  Hand-delivering it to Enrollment is the most efficient way for you to ensure that receipt of transcripts do not hold up your application.  If you have previously submitted transcripts and have since completed courses or are currently registered for courses, then you need to submit an updated transcript.

Transfer students from another CAAHEP accredited Medical Assistant education program must also provide:

  • an official transcript proving enrollment in clinical courses within the last 5 years
  • course syllabi from all previous Medical Assistant courses.  Additional documents can be emailed to: jmuse@northshore.edu

 

Supplemental Information

Supplemental requirements for the Medical Assisting program is available online and must be printed, initialed, signed, and uploaded as a requirement upon submission of the application.
