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 will be given to Morris County residents.

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 in brochures available in the Office of Admissions or in the Department of Nursing and Department of Allied Health. 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.

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.  Completion of prerequisite courses does NOT guarantee admission into the professional (clinical) phase.
