Dental Assisting College Credits
There are a number of options for earning college credits at CPAVTS. It is important that students work with the Admissions Office at the school they plan on attending. Our Student Services office will help to guide students through this process as well.
A HACC course is taught by CPAVTS instructors (HACC adjuct faculty) at CPAVTS. There is a cost for each credit students earn, though it is greatly reduced from HACC's already low tuition cost.
These courses are part of the normal curriculum during for Level 3 students and the course is delivered during the normal Program time. Particicipation is optional for students but highly recommended. These HACC credits can be used at many other schools across the state either as elective credits or towards a certification or degree.
