Restricted and Capped Enrollment

Placement into certain degree or certificate programs may be restricted if interest exceeds the number that can be enrolled at a particular time. Where enrollment in a curriculum is limited, priority consideration is given to students who have taken (some or all) pre-professional courses at CCM and the grades earned in those courses.

Admission to the following specialized programs is subject to additional criteria and restrictions. The college reserves the right to identify other academic programs that may require restricted or capped enrollments in the future.

Nursing, Radiography, Respiratory Therapy

Admission criteria, technical standards, and grade requirements for Nursing and Allied Health are described on the Department of Nursing and Department of Allied Health website. All prospective Nursing and Allied Health students must meet technical standards.

Technical standards are the minimum fundamental abilities that are necessary to perform the activities requisite to obtaining credit for education and subsequent entry-level employment in the nursing and allied health professions.

Internal or transfer credits for science courses over seven years old will not be accepted.  If courses exceed the seven-year limit, students can prove competency by testing or they must repeat the course.  All grades must be a C or higher.  Multiple grades of D and F as well as W (withdrawal from a course) in science and English courses prior to obtaining a passing grade will decrease the student’s ranking and chances of getting a seat in the professional (clinical) phase.

Admission into CCM and completion of prerequisite (pre-professional) courses does NOT guarantee acceptance into the professional phase of these programs.  A separate and distinct  admission application must be completed for admission into the professional phase of the programs and the process is competitive.  Due to the competitive nature of these programs, obtaining a seat in the professional (clinical) phase is based on a number of factors, including courses completed at County College of Morris, the grades earned, and the overall grade point average at the time the application form is filed and reviewed. Students must abide by guidelines set forth in clinical contracts, including Criminal History Background Checks and drug testing.  Results of these screenings may impact initial acceptance and continued enrollment in these programs.
