Allied Health Associate of Science Degree
The Allied Health major is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year program or a community college allied health occupation program, such as Dental Hygiene, Physical Therapy Assistant, Radiologic Technology, Registered Nurse, or Respiratory Therapy. Students who plan to apply to a specific allied health occupation program at a community college must first complete a set of prerequisite courses. Students who complete the prerequisites for one of these programs will complete this major in the process. Prerequisites can vary slightly from one school to another or may change from one year to the next, so students should check with the targeted school for the current prerequisites needed. Please check with a Mendocino College counselor for additional information about preparing to apply to a specific health occupation program. As with all programs, students who intend to transfer to a four-year institution should research the transfer institution's requirements and plan to complete the CSU GE Breadth pattern or IGETC GE pattern.
