Helpful Resources

We have several resources available for you to learn more about KPSAHS, our programs, and admissions processes.

Information Sessions

Prospective students are highly encouraged to sign up for a general or program-specific virtual Information Session. These interactive sessions are a great way to learn more about the college and individual programs.


Courses that have previously been evaluated for transfer credit can be found in the Transfer Credit Database. (Evaluation of transfer credits which may be applied to the degree is completed only after acceptance to KPSAHS.) This is not an exhaustive list and is modified routinely. If a course is not listed on the database it has not yet been evaluated. Please email the Admissions team and we’ll be happy to help.

Bachelor’s Degree Programs

Bachelor’s degree programs require that you have earned an AA or AS (or higher) degree (AAS degrees are not accepted for these programs) and completed specific prerequisite courses.

Additionally, you will need to submit either documented proof of 8 hours of job shadowing or complete the Job Shadowing Writing Assignment. Both the in-person job shadowing and the job shadowing writing assignment must correspond to the program you are applying to.

Certificate Programs

Certificate programs require a high school diploma or GED and a passing score on the Wonderlic Scholastic Level exam. (Only high school transcripts or GEDs are accepted for certificate programs.) Phlebotomy program applicants are also required to present a valid American Heart Association Basic Life Support for Health Care Professionals card at the time of application.
