Those who wish to enroll for graduate-level course work (as opposed to the undergraduate courses as specified in the Post-Baccalaureate section) before being admitted to a graduate program should apply for Graduate General Studies admission. This type of admission does not include admission to any other graduate or undergraduate program, nor is it required to apply to a graduate program at Adventist University. Please call the Office of Enrollment Services at 407-303-7742 for admission deadline dates.
Students will be considered for Graduate General Studies admission when they:
Submit an application online and nonrefundable $100 application fee.
Present evidence of a Bachelor's degree in an appropriate major from a regionally accredited institution.
Present current official transcripts from all undergraduate and/or graduate institutions attended. Admission GPAs will be calculated based on credits and grades from regionally accredited institutions only. Transcripts must be mailed or delivered electronically to the Office of Enrollment Services from each institution attended. Transcripts will be considered official only when received directly from the institution and not hand-delivered by the applicant or faxed by the institution attended. Failure to disclose all colleges previously attended could result in denial or dismissal. Additionally, transcripts from institutions outside the United States must be evaluated by an approved foreign credential evaluation company. A list of approved companies is available in the Foreign Transcript Evaluation section. Submit official transcripts for all College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Advanced Placement (AP), and/or International Baccalaureate (IB) coursework only if the applicant would like them to be considered for transfer of credit.
- Present a minimum cumulative undergraduate GPA of 2.50 or higher on a 4.00 scale.
Submit official satisfactory score on Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Miller Analogies Test (MAT).
Provide evidence of English language proficiency for those applicants for whom English is not their primary language or who have graduated from a non-English speaking school (see English Language Proficiency section).
Due to the type and quality of resources needed for graduate coursework, course enrollment may be limited. Students accepted to a program of study will be given preference for course enrollment.
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. Adventist University of Health Sciences will not accept transcripts as official documents that have been issued to students or submitted by students. Faxed transcripts are not considered official. Recommendation forms, official transcripts, and career essays received with an Adventist University 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 needing to complete undergraduate prerequisite requirements should refer to the Post-Baccalaureate section.
The Adventist University graduate programs have additional admission requirements; please refer to the appropriate section of the Graduate Academic Bulletin.
