Applicants who are admitted 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. Admission to Husson or to particular programs may be denied 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.

Applying to Clinical or Professional Programs

Students pursuing degrees leading to application for professional licensure or certification, and/or who will be participating in clinical placements, internships, or practicals 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.
