Health Sciences Center (HSC)
Since its establishment in 1970, the Health Sciences Center (HSC) has attracted both graduate and undergraduate students. The fourth and newest health sciences center in the SUNY system, this major division of Stony Brook University is comprised of five professional Schools: Health Technology and Management, Dental Medicine, Medicine, Nursing, and Social Welfare. University Hospital and the Long Island State Veterans Home are major teaching facilities for the educational and research programs of the Center.
All Health Sciences Center (HSC) undergraduate programs begin in the junior year except for two programs, the senior-year B.S. Health Science, and the Nursing accelerated one-year program, which requires a baccalaureate degree.
Students who have successfully completed 57 university credits, including specific courses, are eligible to apply for admission to the individual programs offered by the Schools of Health Technology and Management, Social Welfare, and Nursing. HSC programs require a formal application except for three programs in the School of Health Technology and Management that students can declare as a major beginning in freshman year: health science, respiratory care, and clinical laboratory sciences. Students in these majors will be advanced to the upper-division major upon successful completion of program prerequisites. Consult the School of Health Technology and Management for additional information.
Admission to HSC programs is highly selective and each School is responsible for determining its own admissions policy and selecting its own students. Depending on the program, admissions is open for the summer, fall, or spring terms.
Office of Student Services
The Health Sciences Center Office of Student Services functions as an administrative liaison between and among the schools of the Center and between various administrative offices.
