Collin Student Testimonial - Advising was incredibly helpful and welcoming. They answered all of my questions. Plus, they informed me of resources such as the library and bookstore. They were very informative and I greatly appreciate it.Academic Advising

The McKinney Campus is home to the Cary A. Israel Health Sciences Center, which host most of Collin's Health Science programs.  It offers state-of-the art lab facilities and simulation areas, including a simulated operating room, patient care facilities and space for reality-based emergency exercises. 

How do I learn more about the program requirements?  Start with academic advising!

Meeting individually with one of our academic advisors will help get you started on your program of choice by reviewing degree plans, application processes, and answering general questions about our Health Science programs.   Prospective or current students are welcome to visit with an advisor at any of our campuses.  With campuses conveniently located throughout Collin County, we are here to serve you! 

Special Admissions Information Sessions

Information Sessions are offered by individual programs with some being mandatory for special program admission.  Check their websites for the dates of these sessions.  Meeting with an academic advisor does not replace the requirement to attend a mandatory information session if a particular academic program requires it.   

 Interested in seeing our campus?  Consider taking a Campus Tour to see what we have to offer.  

Tours are led by enthusiastic and knowledgeable Campus Ambassadors. A tour takes approximately one hour. Visiting students may request to visit with an academic advisor, financial aid officer, or other campus department representative immediately following the tour (may not be available on weekend tours). Students will need to bring a photo ID to meet with departmental representatives.

Health Science Programs 

Collin College's Health Science programs offer degrees and/or certificates in various Health Science professions. These programs are special admission programs - meaning they may require students to complete specific prerequisite courses, submit an additional admission application,  take an entrance exam or submit supplemental materials.

Students are not guaranteed a position in any of these programs; however, admission is typically based on overall merit and available class size.  Contact Academic Advising for questions about getting started on these programs, or click on the links below for more information.
