Former Health Programs Admissions Advisor at Portland Community College
almost 2 years ago
As a Health Programs Admissions Advisor, you spend most of your time meeting with students, reviewing their transcripts, and talking about how competitive they might be as an applicant to a particular health program. You need to be able to clearly communicate admissions requirements, the application process, and help students set up a course plan. Sometimes there are challenging conversations when a student is clearly not a competitive applicant. Every month you may do a campus visit to present on the different program admissions requirements to groups of students. During application season, you review student applications. Most of your time is face to face with students.
