Drug-Free Policy
For the protection and welfare of all students and staff, the school has established the following drug-free policy. All students are hereby notified:

  • That the unlawful manufacture, distribution, possession, or use of a controlled substance in the school is prohibited;
  • That violations of this prohibition will result in discharge or other appropriate actions;
  • That as a condition of enrollment, each student agrees that he/she will abide by the terms of the above statement, and will notify the School Director of any criminal drug statute conviction for a violation occurring in school no later than five days after such conviction;

Financial Advising 
Payment plans may be customized as needed to help students meet their financial obligations to the school. This must be arranged with the Registrar upon registration. Plans of payment will be designed so that the last payment is due on or before the issuing of diplomas. A non-refundable registration fee of $75.00 is required to be paid at the time of registration. 

At times, loan services may be available for those who qualify. Students are responsible for understanding the terms and conditions of their loans. They must manage their loan directly with the lender. EHA or its members will not be liable for any loan default or any fraud with respect to this financial transaction. EHA will facilitate this process by collecting the necessary documents and application forms from the student to the lender through the student services’ Office.

Placement Assistance Services
The School Director serves as a liaison between the graduates and the business/medical community. Information on job search techniques is provided to students and graduates based on the current needs of local businesses and industry. However, no employment information or placement assistance provided by the school should be considered either expressly or implied as a guarantee or promise of employment, a likelihood of employment, an indication of the level of employment or compensation expected, or an indication of the types of job titles of positions for which students or graduates may qualify.

This assistance consists primarily of educating students in developing the ability to successfully perform these tasks as they begin to seek employment. These tasks are taught during and towards the end of each program.

  • Preparing resumes
  • Developing job interviewing skills
  • Identifying job position openings
  • Maintaining employment once hired
  • Developing and utilizing a network of professional contacts who can aid the job search effort

A successful job search is dependent upon the confidence, willingness, and preparedness of the applicant. Students and graduates are encouraged not to place restrictions on their job search endeavors regarding location, starting salary, and specific benefits. Any employment students or graduates may obtain through the school’s assistance may, in all probability and likelihood, be an entry-level position.

The school shall not deny admission or discriminate against students enrolled on the basis of race, creed, color, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation or national origin. The school will reasonably accommodate applicants and students with disabilities to the extent required by applicable law.

Academic Counseling
Faculty office hours will be noted in the appropriate course syllabus. Faculty members will be available a minimum of one hour each week to provide student counseling. Staff members will be available in the administration office during business hours. 

A student may contact either an instructor or the Program Director if one is in need of academic counseling services during business hours.
