- Submit official transcripts for all College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Advanced Placement (AP), and/or International Baccalaureate (IB) coursework.
- Provide evidence of English language proficiency for those applicants for whom English is not their native language or who have graduated from a non-English speaking school (see English Language Proficiency section).

Once a student has attended ADU for one trimester, an additional recommendation will be required for professional program admission. Please consult the admission requirements for the specific program to which you are applying.
A transcript is considered official when stamped with the official school seal/security paper, signed by the appropriate school official, and received in a sealed envelope directly from the sending institution. ADU will not accept transcripts issued to students or submitted by students as official documents. Faxed transcripts are not considered official. Recommendation forms, official transcripts, and career essays received with an ADU application will be retained for one year. Applications received without an official transcript(s), career essay, and/or Recommendation Forms will be retained for six months.
Applicants who have not exhibited integrity and appropriate behavior during the application process or whose admission materials provide sufficient evidence that their character is not in keeping with the mission of Adventist University may be denied admission.
1Applicants submitting an unweighted GPA of 2.00-2.49 may be accepted on Probationary status.
2SAT and ACT scores will be used to determine admission status, placement, and advising. Applicants with 24 or more college-level credits from a regionally accredited college are exempt from taking the ACT or SAT. Applicants scoring less than 19 composite or an individual score of less than 19 on the English or math portions will be required to complete academic placement testing. Additionally, applicants scoring less than a 910 combined SAT score or an individual score of less than 470 on the Critical Reading or Math portions will also be required to complete academic placement test.

Unofficial transcripts will be accepted from the student or by fax from the institution but must be as similar to an official transcript as possible. Key elements must include courses taken, grades earned, credit hours, quality points, term GPAs, and the cumulative GPA. Degree audits and class schedules will not be accepted as unofficial transcripts. Courses will not be transferred at any time based on unofficial transcripts.
