Health Care Credentials

Apply your health care credentials toward your Ottawa University bachelor’s degree.

You may follow the Health Care Management Clinical Track if you hold a listed credential earned through your Associate’s Degree in a clinical field. If you followed an alternative  educational pathway for your primary credential, contact your Enrollment Advisor for information on credit evaluation.

For a postprimary credential, you may 1) submit your transcripts for credits earned through an academic institution; or 2) receive upper division credit for meeting the educational requirement through activities approved by State Licensing Agency or credentialing organization.

Contact your Enrollment Advisor for questions and additional information on credit evaluation for a postprimary credential.

Credit Evaluation is available to those who have earned any of the following recognized health care registries:
