Admissions Criteria

In order to be considered for admission to any ATU-Ozark Allied Health program, each student must meet the following criteria:

Platform Coursework

Students will be required to complete platform coursework with a minimum 2.5 GPA prior to admission to the technical phase of the ATU-Ozark Allied Health Programs.  Applicants with platform coursework completed at other institutions should have their official transcripts sent to the Office of Student Services for review.  The platform coursework can be found on the website of each program at https://www.atu.edu/ozark/academics/index.php.  

Substitution and/or waiving of platform coursework will be at the discretion of the Program Director in accordance with the policies and procedures of the Ozark Campus.  Conditional acceptance may be granted to those students who are in the process of completing remaining platform coursework. Failure to maintain a 2.5 GPA upon completion of remaining platform coursework may lead to forfeiture of admission offer.

Technical Coursework

Students must apply to the technical phase of the program following completion of the platform coursework.  Admission to the technical phase is competitive due to limited enrollment. Satisfactory completion of the technical coursework will enable a student to graduate with an Associate of Applied Science degree. The technical phase of each ATU-Ozark Allied Health program includes a combination of classroom/laboratory study.  The technical coursework can be found on the website of each program at https://www.atu.edu/ozark/academics/index.php.  

Selection Process

Offers of admission for available spaces will be made to the qualified applicants with the highest overall ratings.  All applicants will be notified by email from the Allied Health Secretary of their admission status.  Applicants accepted into the program must notify the Allied Health Secretary as soon as possible of their decision to accept or decline the offer of admission.  Applicants who decline admission or are not accepted for admission may reapply for admission the following year.  In the event an opening for a student becomes available, then applicants from the alternate list will be offered admission according to individual ranking.   

Selection Criteria

Due to the limited spots available for each class, the programs must use a method of ranking each candidate according to the candidate’s qualifications.  For specific program details, please visit the ATU-Ozark website of each program at https://www.atu.edu/ozark/academics/index.php.
