How do I apply?
Call 800.253.2874 and ask for Admissions and we will fill out an application for you over the phone. For admissions information evenings and weekends call 269.876.7933 or 269.876.1066. You may also email to firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
What are the admissions standards?
College cumulative GPA of 2.25 or above. If you just started college this fall the high school requirements are a cumulative high school GPA of 2.25 and an ACT of 20 (Math section of 20 as well) or SAT of 970 (Math section of 500) or above for each of the above.
What about Transcripts/FAFSA/Financial Aid?
You will begin on a PTC (Permission to Take Classes) basis as an Undeclared major initially, and then after you get settled change over to a specific degree program which will allow time to have transcripts from your previous college sent to Andrews University. This will also allow eligibility for federal aid to be determined from FAFSA information for funds toward tuition, fees, and books. After that amount is determined with the help of your financial aid advisor, Andrews University will cover the remainder of the tuition for both semesters (fall & spring) of the 2005-2006 school year.
How late can I apply/enroll?
Your enrollment process should be initiated by September 9, 2005.
This program is for Adventist students who are studying at a university or college in Louisiana, Mississippi or Alabama that has had its operations interrupted (either for a short or long period of time). A short letter from your pastor indicating your situation is recommended.
How do I get there?
