The School of Adult and Professional Studies has a flexible rolling application deadline. Prospective students should attend an information meeting or contact a counselor to receive program information and admission documents.
Prospective students fill out an application for one of the five undergraduate degree programs. Once it is determined that an undergraduate prospective student is qualified for admission, that student is invited to the next scheduled registration meeting for the traditional program, or an online registration process for the online program. At the meeting held at the Azusa campus as well as various regional centers, students take a timed writing exam and pay the $25 application fee and $100 registration fee. Online students will complete this process online and pay the $25 application fee and $100 registration fee prior to the beginning of their cohort. All students then collaborate with a counselor in the evaluation of their portfolios to maximize the level of credit grantable.
Registration is by invitation only. Qualified traditional program students unable to attend the registration meeting may register individually.
Some programs (Liberal Studies, BSOL, CL) begin as soon as enough students enroll to form a cohort, MIS/CIS begins in the fall and spring if enough students have enrolled. The students form a cohort and complete the program as a group.
Prospective students fill out an application for the one graduate degree program. The MLOS program classes start in September and January. Registration is done the first night of class. The students form a cohort and complete the program as a group.
Note: Students in cohorts need only register once for the duration of the program.
