Thank you for your interest in LLCC Medical Coding! This checklist is intended for advising purposes — to assist you in determining if the program is right for you.
Please note: The checklist does not guarantee admission into the program. It is the student’s responsibility to notify Admissions when requirements have been met.
Admission and program requirements are subject to change
- HS transcript with proof of graduation or GED certificate on file in Admissions & Records Office
- Complete HLT 109 (Medical Terminology) with a grade of “C” or higher.
- Official transcripts from all colleges ever attended evaluated by Admissions & Records Office. Students that neglect to do this, or delay doing this, may jeopardize their ability to apply to, be accepted to, or remain enrolled in a health professions program at LLCC.
- Cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better for all previous college courses
- Submit the Medical Coding Specialist program application
- Attended mandatory informational session for MCS

Chapter 112, Section 103-17, of the Illinois Public Community College Act requires that whenever enrollment in a program must be restricted because of space limitations, a college must give preference to district residents. Consequently, admission to Health Career programs for students who live outside of LLCC District #526 vary per program based on space available and qualified applicant pools.
