2016-17 Enrollment Program

Exclusively for Health Programs Students

Registration for 2016-17 is NOW OPEN!

Dear Health Programs Student:


I am delighted to introduce the Health Programs Enrollment Program for the 2016-17 Academic year exclusively for students enrolled in the Health Programs. Registering for the fall, spring, and summer sessions is an important strategy to ensure you remain on track toward completing your degree. When you register now for the entire 2016-17 academic year, you secure your seat in required courses and you become eligible to participate in the Health Programs Enrollment Program.


Eligibility for Participation: Health Programs students who register by 9/5/2016 for at least (6) credits per session for the fall, spring and summer terms. Eligible students must register for classes for the entire year, not by session.


Students who enroll in and successfully complete at least (6) credits in the fall session will receive a Peirce mug at the start of the spring term.


Students who enroll in and successfully complete at least (6) credits in the spring term will receive a Peirce tee shirt at the start of the summer term.


Students who enroll in and successfully complete at least (6) credits in the summer term will receive a Peirce fleece at the end of the summer term.

What is a Degree Continuation / Completion Plan? Why Do I Need One?

Degree Continuation Plan


A degree continuation plan is a schedule of the courses you need to take, in the order you need to complete them, to continue to make progress toward your degree. A degree continuation plan maps out your courses for the entire academic year and is specifically for students who are not yet ready to graduate in 2016-17.


Degree Completion Plan


A degree completion plan is a schedule of the courses you need to take, in the order you need to complete them, to finish your degree. A degree completion plan maps out your courses for the entire academic year and is specifically for students who are planning for graduation in 2016-17.


Requests for Independent Study (IS)


Identifying courses that you need, that are not offered on the course schedule, is another benefit of registering for fall, spring, and summer courses! Requests for IS by students who plan to graduate in 2016-17 cannot be guaranteed without first having in place a degree completion plan by 9/5/2016. Not sure if you are close to graduation, contact your Academic Advisor today!

New to Peirce Fit?

Peirce Fit is a life-friendly way to earn a degree where you choose from week to week to attend class on campus or online. So if you prefer the convenience of online classes but occasionally want a traditional classroom experience, you can do that. Or if you enjoy an on campus environment but something comes up, you always have the flexibility to study online.
