Admissions & Applying

The decision to attend college may be one of the most important ones you'll ever make. Don't worry—we're here to make it easy.

We’re excited that you want to get a head start on college preparations as a high school student.  Here are the several options available to you:

  1. On-campus courses that you can take alone or with a group through the Berrien Springs RESA or area high schools, taught by Andrews University faculty or supplementary faculty.
  2. Online courses, taken either individually or with a group through Adventist academies or Griggs International Academy affiliate schools, taught by our faculty or supplementary faculty.
  3. Concurrent enrollment courses taken by groups of students attending an Adventist academy, taught by approved academy teachers (serving as Andrews University supplementary staff).

You’re eligible to take our classes if you meet the following criteria:

  1. You are enrolled in grade 10, 11, 12, or equivalent education levels.
  2. You have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 from an accredited high school.  If a transcript from an accredited high school cannot be submitted, we require standardized test scores. 
  3. If your first language isn’t English, you must provide evidence of English proficiency.
  4. You must submit signed approval from a parent and your high school registrar (unless you’re homeschooled).

There are a few financial requirements:

  1. If you want to qualify for the $135 per credit tuition rate, you must register for and start the course(s) before you graduate from high school or take the GED test.
  2. You can take a maximum of two courses per semester.  You must meet any prerequisites. 
  3. If you decide to attend college full-time here at Andrews, you can request that up to 30 of your undergraduate credits taken as a high school guest student apply toward your proposed degree.  You must have earned at least a C in each course for said course to be accepted for degree credit.

If you decide to take our classes while still in high school, you are responsible for the following:

  1. Each school makes its own decisions about whether university courses fulfill high school graduation requirements, so it’s your job to clarify credit status with your high school counselor before registering.
  2. As a guest student taking Andrews University classes, you are held to the same academic policies, procedures and deadlines as university students. 

Thanks for considering us as you continue your academic journey!  The links below can help guide you through our registration process.
