Admissions Policies and Process


Students must be able to fulfill all prerequisites and send in the appropriate application and fee to be considered for any Maternidad La Luz program. Preference for admissions is given to students applying for the One-Year, 18-Month, and Three-Year Programs.

The Admissions Committee, consisting of a director, a staff midwife, and a student, reviews applications.  The applicant should telephone Maternidad La Luz ten days after sending in an application to arrange for a phone interview with a director.  The applicant also speaks with a student currently enrolled at Maternidad La Luz as part of the admissions process.  This gives the applicant an understanding of the program from a student’s perspective. There is also an interview in Spanish for on-site applicants to assess the applicant’s ability to communicate in Spanish.  A second Spanish interview may be necessary before acceptance into the program.

Two directors review the completed application, the phone interviews and the recommendations of the Admissions Committee in selecting students for the upcoming class.  Applicants are notified of acceptance at least three months in advance of the requested start date.  A waiting list is maintained of eligible students who will be notified as openings in the program become available.

Students are encouraged to submit their applications six months prior to the program starting date in order to ensure placement in the preferred class.  However, Maternidad La Luz has a rolling admissions policy and will consider later applications if space is still available.
 
Once accepted, students receive an acceptance letter with the dates of their program and useful information about Maternidad La Luz and El Paso.  Students must send the deposit within the time stated in their acceptance letter in order to secure a place in the program.  Student Handbooks are sent approximately three months prior to the start date.

Qualified midwifery students are accepted without discrimination in regard to sex, race, marital status, religion, ethnic origin, creed, age, sexual orientation/preference or physical ability. Maternidad La Luz attempts to provide reasonable access to all qualified students with disabilities.
