Conductive Education Certificate: Admissions

Admission Requirements

We take great pride in the rigor of our curriculum and our students' thirst for success. Setting the bar high in our program admissions requirements helps maintain those standards from the start. Admission to the program is competitive. Due to the limited spots available in the program, meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Students may be given preferential consideration for admission to the program when they have successfully completed 12 college-level hours at AHU.

Part 1: Apply to AHU

Before you can apply to the Conductive Education certificate program, you must first be admitted for General Studies at AHU. Remember: Being admitted for General Studies does not guarantee admission to the program. View General Admissions requirements →
