Selection Criteria
Applicants for the program will be considered in the following order:

  1. Qualified residents of the district and residents of districts engaged in cooperative agreements who submit a Sleep application by June 1 of the year they plan to enroll in the program. The applicant's file must be completed by June 15.

  2. Qualified nonresidents who submit an application by June 1. The application must be completed by June 15.

  3. On a space available basis, applicants who do not meet all of the admissions requirements or the deadline may be considered after June 15.

Point System
Students will be admitted to the Sleep Technologist Program through a weighted score made up of three factors: cumulative high school or college GPA; number of college credit hours completed; and grades and credit hours in specified course work.

Points for various criteria will be given according to the chart below. Students will also be required to meet the current minimum standards for admission.

Students will be required to list, on the Sleep Admission Application, all colleges attended. Students will select one of the following options on the intent form for calculating their college GPA for admission.

  1. Students may use only their Moraine Valley hours as the college GPA for admission. If students choose this option, they cannot use their other college credit toward the certificate requirements or for points towards admission.

  2. Students may use their college credit toward the certificate requirements and points towards admission. When the GPA is calculated all college credit will be used. These hours may then be used as regular transfer credit.

Ties will be broken based on grade point average. Current minimum prerequisites and file completion requirements would still be in effect.

Success Courses (The BIO and MRT-110 must have been completed no longer than 5 years prior to the program admission deadline.)

  • Choose:  MRT-110

Success Course Weighting
A = 3 points X Credit hours
B = 2 points X Credit hours
C = 1 points X Credit hours
All other grades = No points


  • Student has BIO-115 with an A 3 points X 5 credit hours = 15 points

  • Student has MRT-110 with a B 2 points X 3 credit hours = 6 points

  • Total points for success courses = 15 for BIO-115 + 6 for MRT-110 = 21 Pts

Applicants not selected for one starting class are individually responsible for reactivating and updating their application file for subsequent starting classes. Re-applicants must complete a new Sleep Technology Admission Application and submit it to the Admissions and Records Office during the applicable period stated.
