How to Apply for the Medical Coder/Biller Program

The Medical Coder/Biller program is a limited-access program offered by the Health Sciences Institute at EFSC. The program begins every Fall. All students must be current EFSC students and must complete a Medical Coder/Biller Program application in addition to the general EFSC application. Important Note: Effective with students starting Fall Term 2022, the program will transition from a College Credit Certificate to an Applied Technology Diploma (ATD). The courses in the 37-credit hour Medical Coder/Biller ATD curriculum are the same as the 37-credit hour CCC. View the 2022-23 catalog curriculum.
