Program Information 

  • MAA courses are offered primarily during the day.

Recommendations 

  • OFC 102 can be "waived" by a demonstrated keyboarding speed of 20 words per minute based on a two-minute timing administered by the Office Administration Department Chair.  OFC 102 is a prerequisite for OFC 113 and OFC 117.
  • Take MAA 101 (Medical Terminology) before BIO 115 (Survey of Anatomy & Physiology).  Take OFC 120 (Text Editing) before MAA 102 (Medical Transcription).
  • A student who is unable to fit MAA 209 into their last spring semester should consult with the Program Coordinator about substituting the 3 credit CED 210 (Cooperative Work Experience I).
