When can I start the program?

  • You can start the Medical Assisting program in the fall or spring semester.
  • A waitlist can form for this program so the year you start depends on when you applied and the status of the waitlist.

When can I apply, and how can I apply?

  • You can apply to Coffeyville Community College & register/enroll with technical campus staff as early as April for the next year’s fall admittance or in November for Spring Admittance.
  • Given that a waitlist can form for this program, we recommend you apply early. After you have been accepted into the College, you MUST contact the Technical campus to ensure you have a spot saved in the program. Admissions does not guarantee enrollment.

Does this program have a waitlist and how long is it?

  • A waitlist may form for the program so the earlier you apply the better.
  • Even if you are initially placed on a waitlist, you may be able to take the spot of someone who decides not to attend.
  • If you have already completed an application and want to know what number you are on the waitlist, contact the Technical campus at 620-252-7550, ext 10.

How long is the program and what kind of diploma/degree will I receive?

  • The Medical Assisting program offers a two year Associate of Applied Science degree program if attending full-time and starting in the fall semester. Students who start in the spring will attend 5 semesters. During the spring students can take Phlebotomy Essentials and work on general education requirements. Core MA classes start the following fall.
  • The Allied Health department does offer certificate programs for Phlebotomy as well as Certified Professional Coder. Financial aid/scholarships are not available for these certificate programs. Students who are part of the Medical Assistant degree program also take phlebotomy and Insurance, billing, and coding classes. Federal financial aid and scholarships may be available to those Medical Assisting students who qualify.
