2. The student must complete an application packet to the Human Services Technology
Program. This application includes an essay by the student on her/his interest in and
understanding of human services and her/his professional goals.
Re-Admission of Returning Students:
Any student who fails a HUST or ALHE course will not be able to continue onto the next
semester of HUST courses. If this is the student’s first failure, the student may re-apply to
the HST Program and, if accepted, placement of the returning student will be determined
after previous coursework has been evaluated by the program director. Courses more than
two years old will have to be repeated. More than one “D” and/or “F” in HUST or ALHE
courses will result in permanent dismissal from the program. (This may be two courses or
failure of the same course twice.)
The HST program reserves the right to discontinue, at any time and as the result of a 3
step process, the enrollment of a HST student if, in the judgment of the Vice President for
Academic Affairs, the HST faculty, and the Dean of the Business/Social Science Division,
the student does not appear to have the necessary qualifications for a career as a HST.

annual TB testing are required prior to enrolling in the first practicum experience.
2. A minimum grade point average of 2.0 is required in each Human Services course
for graduation from the program. If a grade less than "C" is received the course must

the practicum and field work experiences, and is included in student fees.
