Medical Assistant Admissions Requirements

Ameritech College of Healthcare is home to one of Utah’s longest-running Medical Assisting programs. If you’re ready to start a rewarding career as a medical assistant, you’ve come to the right place! The college admissions process can be a stressful experience, but our Admissions Advisors are here to walk you through the process. Here are some of our admissions requirements:

Acceptance into the Medical Assisting program will be on a first-come, first-enrolled basis for those who have completed the admissions requirements.

  1. Interview with one of our Admissions Advisors prior to enrollment. During the interview, the goals, objectives, motivations, and commitment level of the applicant will be discussed. Additionally, the program details including schedule, tuition, and other associated costs will be reviewed.

  2. Complete and receive a score of 13 or higher on the Wonderlic SLE exam. This exam is administered at no cost to the student. Test scores proctored at institutions other than Ameritech College of Healthcare will not be accepted. Prospective students who do not achieve a score of 13 or higher on their first attempt may retake another version of the exam. If a prospective student does not achieve an acceptable score on the second exam, administration will allow a third test after five business days. A prospective student may test a maximum of three times in a three-month period. Passing exam scores are valid for one year from the date administered.

    Applicants who have taken the ACT exam within 24 months of enrollment, may waive the Wonderlic SLE exam requirements provided minimum ACT composite scores have been met relative to their program of enrollment; see the campus admissions department for specific ACT composite score requirements.

  3. Provide evidence of a High School Diploma, GED equivalent or signed attestation of High School Graduation/GED completion for admittance. If it is discovered that an attestation was falsely signed, the student may be immediately terminated from Ameritech College of Healthcare or denied admissions, if discovery is made prior to the program start. Students may also submit evidence of a college degree from a postsecondary institution whose accreditation is recognized by the United States Department of Education. At this time, we do not accept students under “Ability to Benefit” arrangements.

  4. Pay the required registration fee, which is valid for one year from the date of receipt.

  5. Complete an Enrollment Packet, which includes the Ameritech College of Healtchare Enrollment Agreement.

  6. Meet with a member of the Financial Aid Department to make satisfactory financial arrangements to cover the cost of education prior to starting classes. Acceptable financial arrangements include but are not necessarily limited to:

    a. Title IV funds
    b. Alternative Funding Loans
    c. Cash Payment
    d. Government Funding (WIA, DWS, Voc Rehab, etc.)

  7. Attend the required medical assisting program orientation.
