The Professional Readiness Program (PRP) is available for applicants possessing a high school diploma or equivalent who have unsuccessfully attempted the standardized entrance test.
PRP students will attend a mandatory structured course including reading comprehension and math review, adaptive online curriculum, and weekly practice tests to prepare the student for entrance into the core program.
Attendance, participation and conduct are tracked daily in the PRP and successful participation is required in order for the student to be approved for enrollment into their program of study.
Upon successful completion of PRP, the entrance testing requirement is waived. Under such circumstances, the applicant may be admitted conditionally.
PRP is available to qualified applicants seeking admission to the Dental Assisting, Massage Therapy, Medical Assistant, Medical Billing and Coding, Optical Technician, Pharmacy Technician, or Vocational Nursing - Lynwood programs.
In special cases, PRP is available to applicants seeking admission to other programs. PRP requirements vary in such cases. Additional information is available at individual campuses.
