Admission Status

Applicants who are granted admission to the university without restriction are considered to be in regular standing. They are permitted to continue in this classification as long as they maintain a satisfactory grade-point average and continue to meet the general standards established by the university for admission and graduation.

Some applicants may be deficient in one or more of the requirements for admission but, in the estimation of the Admissions Committee, merit the opportunity to prove themselves at APU. Such applicants are admitted into the Academic Success Launch Program and are provided one-on-one support from the Academic Success Center. Applicants admitted into this program meet with their assigned coach within the first month of enrollment and set up an individualized academic success plan, and benefit from personalized one-on-one coaching, workshops, and connections to on-campus resources. Additionally, these applicants must take GE 101 Academic Success Lab (1 unit), which is designed to equip students for success at APU. The number of students admitted to the Academic Success Launch Program each year is limited.

Students are often granted admission with incomplete admissions requirements, particularly if they are enrolled in courses at another institution during their admissions process. In these cases, students are obligated to complete admissions requirements as soon as possible, including submission of all final official transcripts with no in-progress coursework. Failure to satisfactorily complete all requirements in a timely manner may result in withdrawal of the university’s acceptance offer, or forfeiture of financial aid and registration privileges.
