Advanced Status/Transfer Credits from others agencies:Healthcare Training Institute can accept previous education credits from an accredited school or state approved institution or college towards an appropriate course/program after review by Healthcare Training Institutes administrative staff. Previous education training must meet Healthcare Training Institutes course/program curriculum requirements and prerequisites. Accordingly, a prospective student must request an official transcript be sent to the school before the start of the program. If the transcript is approved for the section(s) of course/program, the student will not need to attend the specific section(s) of course/program and the section(s) will be listed as transfer credit (TC) on the student transcript and the timeframe in which to complete the course will be shortened. Since these courses will not carry grades, they will not be included in the GPA calculation. These courses will only be applied toward graduation requirements. The transfer student can transfer maximum number of the credit hours to the current program from the other institution or from an HTI program with a minimum of a C(2.0 GPA) or above for the transferable credits according to Transfer of Credits chart. For example, if a transfer student wishes to attend the Medical Assistant Technician program of 40 credits at HTI, the student may transfer up to maximum of 16 credit hours provided they carry at least a 2.0 GPA. The additional 24 credit hours will be earned at HTI. Please refer to Transfer of Credits chart for details for.
