Here's an overview so you know what to expect:
As an Institute of Higher Learning, ACHS is required to offer admission only on receipt of evidence that the applying student can reasonably expect to complete a program and to benefit from the education obtained. All application materials collected during the admissions process prior to enrollment are considered in making admissions decisions.
The Admissions Committee’s review of all applicants includes evaluation of the individual’s prior high school or college transcripts, admissions assessments, and other evidence that the applying student can reasonably expect to complete the courses(s) or program he or she is applying to and benefit from the education obtained.
Following the Committee’s review, the Admissions Committee may:
- Admit the student to his or her desired program at full status
- Provisionally admit the student. Provisional acceptance may include admission to the applicant’s desired program with conditions such as bi-weekly meetings with an advisor, admission to an alternate program, or the recommendation that the applicant complete up to nine credits in individual credits to raise GPA if incoming GPA is under 3.0 and/or demonstrate academic achievement.
- Deny admission
Students who do not meet the minimum requirements for admission to a degree may be considered on a case-by-case basis to be admitted to a certificate or diploma (non-degree) program at the discretion of the Admissions Committee.
