The Fall 2020 admissions criteria for the practical nursing and dental assisting programs at Isothermal Community College have been revised in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, college officials said Wednesday.

The new system will not be based on testing, due to the difficulty of proper distancing and scheduling. Instead, applicants will be evaluated on a points-based system, said Ava Yamouti, Isothermal’s dean of Health and Public Services.

Interested potential students should contact Tina Porter at or 828-395-1621.
