Hawthorn University Students: Individualized Pathway to Success

American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) and Hawthorn University (HU) have worked side-by-side to create a collaborative teach-out and/or transfer plan for current HU students and provide individualized pathways to success.

ACHS is honored to be entrusted by Hawthorn University and the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC) to continue HU students’ learning journey when it closes its doors on December 15, 2021.

In addition, ACHS has been appointed as the HU custodian of record for both current and former students and graduates.

Pathways for HU Students

To make the transition as seamless as possible, ACHS has dedicated advisors trained in the individualized pathways for HU students.

Your Next Steps: 
Option 1 Current Student – Non-Immersion:

With this option, you will be able to complete your current enrolled program supervised by ACHS in accordance with your current program enrollment agreement.

When you select this option, your broader community may be limited as only HU students will have access to these courses. You will also have full access to ACHS student coaching, a thriving online support community, experienced faculty and staff committed to your success.

To select Option 1, please email ACHS Admissions by September 15, 2021, to complete the Student Teach-Out Agreement.

Option 2 Current Student – Full-Immersion:

ACHS will support you to maximize your education and experience to transfer to an ACHS certificate, diploma, or degree program with support from a dedicated admissions advisor to support your application.

With this option, you will fully engage with like-minded peers from across the U.S. and around the world in interactive online classrooms, engaging social platforms, and community coaching groups. This option helps support your success now and after graduation. We’d love to welcome you to our community of one, built by all!
