Due to the limited number of seats, registration in certain Medical Assisting courses requires a selection process. Any student that wishes to graduate from the CMA Exam Preparation or the Associate's degree are required to meet the departmental application requirements as listed below.
Departmental Application Requirements
1. Apply for admission to the University. Students must be considered an undergraduate degree seeking at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Students are encouraged to declare the Pre-Major Medical Assisting major. Students who are not pre-medical assisting majors will not be at a disadvantage in the application process.
3. Meet with an academic advisor to develop an academic plan and learn more about the medical assisting program. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with the Medical Assisting Program faculty, Andria Cross, to learn more about the career, program, application process and develop an academic plan.
5. Complete Medical Assisting Program Application. The Medical Assisting department requires completion of a department application in order to recieve department approval for MA A120 Medical Office Procedures and MA A250 Clinical Procedures I (Fall only courses). These courses are required to make successful certificate or degree progress.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to review the sample application prior to starting
the web application. The application takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete
and must be done in one sitting. There is no way to save the application and come
back later to complete.
Priority deadline for the Fall semester is May 15th with a secondary application deadline of July 1st.
