Before You Apply

We strongly encourage applicants to review all admission requirements before proceeding to the application.

Each department within the School of Health Professions has its own accreditation and licensing board requirements. Although the State of Texas and the University of Texas Medical Branch are members of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), some accreditation and licensing board or state higher education commissions may impose additional restrictions for offering distance education courses within their state. For more information, please see the information for each department: Clinical Laboratory Sciences, Nutrition & Metabolism, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Respiratory Care.
