A hold will be placed on all students that have not taken this exam after the drop/add period in their first term.
It is understood that timely information regarding an applicant's admission status is very important. The following steps are used in processing the application paperwork once it has been received.
- Applicants are required to use the online application found at http://www.adu.edu/apply. Applications received are processed and a User ID number is assigned even if an applicant has not yet been accepted to the University. To obtain a User ID and Password, log on to http://my.adu.edu, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click “Students: Look up your User ID and/or Password.”
- During the application process, prospective students are encouraged to contact their Campus Enrollment Specialist (407-303-7742) for information regarding processes and questions about becoming an Adventist University student. Email is the primary form of communication between applicants and Campus Enrollment Specialists during the application process. Applicants will not be considered for General Studies admission until all application materials have been received, including the application fee.
- Applicants who are not U.S. citizens must provide proof of legal residency.
- Completed files will be taken to the Undergraduate General Studeis Admission Committee. Students will be notified of the Committee's decision in writing. Admission status is available at http://my.adu.edu.
- Admission to the University allows a student to take general education courses. A student must be admitted to a program before he or she can enroll in program-specific courses.
- Separate applications for the on-campus and Denver programs are required. Once students are admitted to General Studies, they will be eligible to apply to a program through their student page at http://my.adu.edu. Students should check their student page to ensure their file is complete and ready for consideration by the specific program(s) to which they are applying.
- Applicants to Nursing and Occupational Therapy Assistant may repeat only two cognate courses one time each to remain eligible to enroll in either program. This includes any courses taken at other institutions.
