Acceptance to our Health Care Programs
Once the admission process is completed, Administration reviews the admissions criteria to determine eligibility. The applicant will be notified of the determination within seven days. The program reserves the right to reject any applicant that it determines will not benefit from the training. Upon approval from Administration, the student will sign an enrollment agreement (must be signed by a parent or guardian if the applicant is under 18 years of age).
The Director of Education will evaluate previous education and training that may be applicable to an educational program offered at AMERICAN COLLEGE OF HEALTHCARE. Students applying for advanced standing must submit an official transcript with catalog class descriptions to the college for review prior to beginning their program of study.
Credit may be given if the education and/or training were completed at another institution accredited by an agency recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) where classes and credit values are comparable to those offered at AMERICAN COLLEGE OF HEALTHCARE and a grade of C or 70% or better was attained. Students may be required to demonstrate competency in requested transfer classes. Transfer credits are not used in determining grade point averages.
Recognition of credits earned at another postsecondary institution is limited to no more than 50 percent of the total hours required for completion of a designated program. AMERICAN COLLEGE OF HEALTHCARE does not grant credit for experiential learning. The institution will conduct an evaluation of previous education and training for all eligible persons, grant appropriate credit, shorten the training period proportionately, reduce cost proportionately and notify the student accordingly.
Transferability of Credits
It is the responsibility of students who plan to transfer to other post-secondary institutions to acquaint themselves with the requirements of any selected college, university or institution. AMERICAN COLLEGE OF HEALTHCARE does not guarantee transferability of credits and it should not be assumed that any classes or programs described in this catalog could be transferred. Any decision on the comparability, appropriateness, and applicability of credits and whether they may be accepted is the decision of the receiving institution. This is a standard transfer-of-credit procedure.
