ACHLS Admissions Criteria
PRIOR EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
A. 60 Credit Hours (minimum) of Undergraduate Study
Applicants to the ACHLS must have successfully completed 60 hours of academic credits.
B. Grade Point Average
The ACHLS seeks students who have a grade point average of at least a 2.7 or higher. It will also, however, admit persons with a lower GPA if the student's record and application materials demonstrate that he or she possesses the requisite skills to successfully complete the program.
C. General Education Requirements
A student who enters ACHLS should have, among his or her prior credits, at least 34 hours of general education credits. One typical ACHLS transfer block is shown here:
A Typical ACHLS Gen Ed Transfer Block:
English Composition/Writing 6 credit hours
Behavioral and/or Social Science 9 credit hours
Humanities and/or Fine Arts
9 credit hours
Natural or Physical Science
7 credit hours
Mathematics/Quantitative Reasoning 3 credit hours
Required General Education credit hours 34 credit hours
Other transfer blocks will have differing total hours for a particular subject area. If you completed 60 hours of a four year or two year college, but do not have 34 hours of the general education requirements, you will be considered on an individualized basis.
D. Articulation Agreements
If you are graduating from a community college that has an Articulation Agreement with ACHLS, it is possible that the Articulation Agreement terms may differ in some respects from the general education requirements set forth on this page. Please contact your Academic Advisor/Counselor for the details of your school's Articulation Agreement, which will be controlling.
