High School Student Admission Checklist

Here are all the steps you'll need to take to be admitted to ADU.

Requirements for General Admission to ADU

  • Application and $20 fee
    Apply to ADU first. If you submit any paperwork before completing an application, we will not be able to process it. Don't forget to pay your $20 application fee when you submit your application!
  • Evidence of Graduation
    Students from a regionally accredited high school: Present evidence of graduation with a standard diploma (at minimum) from a regionally accredited high school. Home-schooled students or Students from a Non-regionally accredited high school: Present evidence of graduation with a standard diploma (at minimum) from a regionally accredited high school. High school students currently in their final year of school are encouraged to apply early; talk to your Enrollment Counselor about our Early Acceptance policy.
  • Official Transcripts

    Submit official transcripts from all colleges previously attended. Admission GPAs will be calculated based on credits and grades from regionally accredited institutions only. Transcripts must be mailed or delivered electronically to ADU from each institution, or the applicant may deliver a transcript in a sealed envelope directly to the Office of Enrollment Services. Faxed copies will not be considered official. Unofficial transcripts may be used for preliminary admission calculations. Failure to disclose all colleges previously attended could result in denial or dismissal. Additionally, transcripts from institutions outside the United States must be evaluated by World Education Services. This is the only company from which we will accept transcript evaluations.

    Applicants with 12 or more college-level credits from a regionally accredited college are exempt form the minimum high school GPA requirement. Only the cumulative college GPA will be used for admission purposes. This includes high school students with 12 or more college-level credits.​

    Transcripts submitted from homeschool graduates in which the applicant’s parent was their instructor must have the transcript notarized before submission. If the applicant will be seeking financial aid, passing GED scores will also be required for packaging but are not required for admission.

    Mail Transcripts to: Adventist University of Health Sciences
    Office of Enrollment Services
    671 Winyah Drive
    Orlando FL, 32803-1226

  • Dual Enrollment Transcripts
    If you completed any dual enrollment course work, we will need transcripts from the associated institution.
  • IB or AP Transcripts
    If you completed any International Baccalaureate (IB) or Advanced Placement (AP) coursework and you would like it considered for transfer of credit, we'll need those official transcripts, too. Transferring IB or AP credits is optional.
  • ACT or SAT Scores
    Submit your scores from the American College Test (ACT) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). Scores will be used for placement and advising and not to determine admission status.
  • GPA Requirements
    We require a minimum unweighted high school GPA of 2.50 to be admitted for General Studies.
