Health Science Admissions Packet

Thank you for your interest in one of the programs within Vincennes University’s College of Health Science and Human Performance.  The selection process for Vincennes University’s College of Health Science and Human Performance is based on the premise that student selection is vital to the development and maintenance of a strong program.  The standards of selection will also contribute to the quality of care administered by graduates of the program.  In order to successfully complete the programs, students must be highly motivated and have an academic background sufficient to cope with the curriculum.  Admission is competitive and compliance with all criteria does not guarantee acceptance to the College of Health Science and Human Performance.

Completed applications may be mailed to:  Vincennes University Health Science Admission Coordinator, 1002 North First Street, Building 14, Vincennes, IN 47591; Emailed to jhooten@vinu.edu; or faxed to 812-888-4550.  Completed packets may also be submitted in person to the Center for Health Sciences (formerly Health Occupations Building), Room 205.
 
Please note that some programs have an extended application review process.  Applicants should begin periodically checking their emails three to four weeks after submission of the completed packet.  The majority of programs review applications October through June with notifications being emailed at various times.

Step 1:  Complete a Vincennes University application for admission.  You must be admitted to Vincennes University in order to submit a health sciences application.  Your acceptance to Vincennes University is separate from admission to the College of Health Science and Human Performance.  Admission is competitive and compliance with all criteria does not guarantee admission to the program.  You should have your high school and applicable college transcripts on file when you apply.   If you do not have college credit for English Composition and College Algebra you must complete the VU assessment test (Accuplacer) prior to submitting your health sciences application.
