Admission Requirements

Husson University believes all individuals who have the desire to further their education and have the potential to succeed should have the opportunity to develop college-level competence. Candidates approved for admission prior to the completion of the academic year are accepted contingent upon successful completion of all academic work and the receipt of a final transcript of grades.

The University reserves the right to refuse the acceptance of a degree candidate if the applicant fails to achieve academic success in course work. Admission to Husson or to particular programs may be refused to applicants considered incapable of making reasonable academic progress. Husson invites applications from secondary school graduates or students having received a General Equivalency Diploma (GED) and qualified international students without regard to age, color, religion, sex, national origin, level of family income, or physical ability. When a student begins study at the University leading to a degree, he or she must meet the curriculum requirements in effect at that time. Should the curriculum requirements change, the student may choose to meet the new requirements instead of those in effect at the beginning of his or her enrollment. However, without prior notice, the University may at any time replace or update curricula and courses. All courses may not be offered during a given academic year. If a student should drop out of school for a calendar year (12-month period), he or she is obligated to meet any new curriculum requirements imposed by the University subsequent to the student's initial enrollment. Nonattendance in summer school sessions does not constitute a break in enrollment. Applicants for admission to Husson may receive guidance and assistance by writing to the Admissions Office on the Husson campus. The Admissions Office provides materials and newsletters to help applicants learn more about the University. They also invite applicants for personal interviews and campus tours.

Students who are pursuing degrees leading to application for professional licensure or certification, and/or who will be participating in clinical placements, internships, or practica through their Husson program of study should be aware that their host facility may require a criminal background check, finger printing, or drug screening. In such situations, students are responsible for obtaining and paying for the background check or other screening process and for delivering required documentation to the facility. Although Husson will make reasonable efforts to place admitted students in field experiences and internships, the host facility will determine whether a student will be allowed clinical access at that facility. Students should be aware that a criminal record may jeopardize completion of their coursework and degree requirements, as well as licensure by the state professional regulating body. Students may consult the licensure and/or certification organization corresponding to their intended program of study for more details. Successful completion of a program of study at Husson does not guarantee licensure, certification, or employment in the relevant occupation.
