2 The ADU Academic Bulletin states that each applicant accepted to a professional program must pay a non-refundable deposit to reserve his or her place in the program. Once the student is enrolled in the program, the deposit will be applied toward the student’s account. If an individual does not enroll, he or she will forfeit the deposit.
