Are You Ready to Change Your Future?

Are you ready to start an important path that will lead you to a rewarding career as a Medical Assistant? At LHWOC, we are here to help you to reach your full potential by beginning a fulfilling career that you love. Our Admissions team will be happy to guide you throughout the application process.

What You’ll Need in Order to Apply

Application to LHWOC is open to anyone who has a high school diploma or a GED. You will not be asked to provide your previous academic transcripts or financial information. Applicants will be asked to take a basic math and literacy assessment. If you pass that requirement, you will be accepted into the program and given a one-time full scholarship.

In order to apply to our Medical Assistant program, applicants must be a resident of Pennsylvania, complete a successful interview with the school’s admissions panel, and have ACT 33/34/73 Clearances which are suitable for employment.

If an adult student is unable to pass the basic math and literacy assessment, additional opportunities will be offered and LHWOC will have community partners who will assist the student in getting through this barrier. All admission requirements must be met prior to enrollment. No student will be awarded an institutional grant or will be permitted to attend classes before all admissions requirements are met.
