ACHS Graduate Admissions

Graduate Admissions Requirements

Our admissions requirements are straightforward:

Applicants to a graduate program at American College of Healthcare Sciences must possess a Bachelors degree or higher from a USDOE-recognized accredited institution. We do not require this degree to be specialized in any specific field and we also do not have any pre-requisite courses required before beginning a graduate program with ACHS. 

ACHS has a formal application process via our online portal. Students will be required to submit the following documents:

  • A copy of a government-issued photo identification, such as a state identification card, valid driver’s license, or passport
  • ACHS Admissions Assessment
  • Official, unopened transcripts: All graduate-level applicants are required to submit an official, unopened transcript demonstrating conferral of a U.S. Department of Education approved accredited bachelor degree or higher. Students should submit previous graduate-level transcripts for transfer of credit review; students using military education benefits are required to submit all official college transcripts.
    • Transcripts should be issued directly to the institution and can be sent to ACHS, 5005 S. Macadam Avenue, Portland, OR 97239. Certified electronic transcripts can also be sent to
