Those who seek to enroll for post-baccalaureate courses in order to satisfy undergraduate prerequisites for ADU graduate programs may apply for admission to the Post-Baccalaureate program. Enrollment in this program is limited to three trimesters, and a minimum of six credit hours per trimester must be taken to satisfy financial aid requirements.
Applicants will be considered for Post-Baccalaureate admission when they:
Submit an application online and a nonrefundable $20 application fee. Paperwork received without an application on file will not be processed. Admission files will not be considered complete until the application fee is paid.
Submit official transcripts from all colleges previously attended. Admission GPAs will be calculated based on credits and grades from regionally accredited institutions only. Transcripts must be mailed or delivered electronically directly to the Office of Enrollment Services from each institution attended. Hand-delivered or faxed copies will not be considered official. Unofficial transcripts1 may be used for preliminary admission calculations. 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.
Present evidence of graduation with a Bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution.
Present a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50 (on a 4.00 scale) on all previous college-level academic work from the above institutions.
Submit official transcripts for any 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 fulfillment of prerequisite requirements.
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).
1 The Office of Enrollment Services accepts unofficial transcripts during the admission process and will use them in part to consider granting Provisional admission status. 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.
