Communication with us
Once you have chosen an allied health program to apply to and have a personal financial plan in mind to fund your education, you will need to begin your admissions process by completing an online application. There is a $60 application fee due at the time of application per submission. Reapplication fee is $30. These fees are nonrefundable. You need only to complete one online application for the University and your program of choice unless you are applying for the programs listed below.
We encourage all applicants to begin the admissions process by submitting their online application as early as possible. Waiting or holding off for the program deadlines may decrease your chances of acceptance into certain programs that fill early and or delay admissions decisions.
International students are encouraged to begin their transcript evaluation process by our approved centers first before completing their online application.
Admissions elements (i.e. transcripts, recommendations, observation/service hours) may be submitted after the application is submitted: but as soon as possible and before the program deadline date. Some programs begin their application reviews once the application is complete. Applicants should request transcripts at the time of submission or shortly thereafter. If courses are still in progress, submit the application and then have final transcripts forwarded to Loma Linda University as soon as possible.

Documented proof of hours needs to be submitted and received before consideration for acceptance to the program.
Students may complete hours locally by calling local facilities and requesting to shadow or do observations within their profession of choice. Some facilities may require a class to orient the student to their facility or specified departments and protocols. Facilities may require a student to adhere to dress code or other facility policies. Check with the facility for requirements.
Community service may include working with national organizations or community projects where bettering the lives of others is involved. Check with your program of choice if you have questions about your community service.
