Info for New Students

We are excited that you are the newest member of the ADU family!

We're here to help.

Getting Started

New Student Registration

Please find the most current dates for New Student Registration in our Academic Catalog, and be sure to contact your Academic Advisor prior to registration — their approval is required to start reserving courses.

Upon returning the invitation included in your ADU acceptance letter, you are assigned an Academic Advisor. This confirms to us your intention to enroll.

Academic Advising

All general studies students will be assigned to an Academic Advisor in the CAA to help in the selection of appropriate courses for their program of interest.

Contact the Center for Academic Achievement for more information.

Application Deadlines

Knowledge is power.

Orientation

New Student Orientation is offered on several dates before the start of each trimester. You'll learn everything you need to know to get started here at ADU, including parking information, school policies, and resources available to help you do your best.

Stay ahead of the game.

Exams for New Students

Proficiency Profile

As an incoming first-year at ADU, we require you to take a Proficiency Profile exam within your first trimester. This exam does not affect your admission status or your GPA.

Academic Placement Testing

Academic placement tests may be required for new students. To determine whether you need to schedule an exam, please refer to your admission status (either Regular-AP or Probation-AP) or by checking your ACT or SAT score.

Opportunities

Clinicals

Our connection with Florida Hospital and Adventist Health Systems ensures that a wide variety of clinical rotation sites are provided for our students. These experiences are designed to promote clinical reasoning, demonstrate values and beliefs that guide ethical practice, and develop professionalism and competence. Once you've been accepted into a program, you can learn more about our clinical opportunities from the program's clinical coordinator.


Work While You Study

We're always in need of student workers to help out around campus. We'll work around your schedule in various departments. A complete list of available student worker positions is available at the Florida Hospital Careers Site.

Volunteering

All students working towards an undergraduate degree must complete the service-learning graduation requirement. Service-learning engages our students in service activities with intentional academic learning goals and opportunities for reflection that connects to their academic disciplines.

Our Student Services department maintains a database of community service opportunities. Students can stop in any day of the week to sign up to serve at specific events, or to find an organization that needs their talents.

Jobs

We're always looking for others who share our vision for healthcare, especially those who wish to further share that vision with our students. Learn more about what it's like to work for ADU and Florida Hospital. Learn more →
