As a private institution, Amberton University restricts admission. Admission to Amberton is a privilege, not a right. Admission is granted only when, in the judgment of University officials, the applicant can benefit from our educational programs. As an upper division (junior/senior level) and graduate institution uniquely designed for working adults, the University does not accept applicants who seek or need the social environment provided at traditional campuses. The University will not allow the enrollment of an individual who has failed to successfully prove his/her academic ability and potential by attending another accredited college or university. In essence, all students who enroll in Amberton University are transfer students.
In dealing with working adults who have been away from the academic environment for years, the University has learned through research that admission tests have little value in predicting academic success. Past academic performance (which is measurable), self-discipline (which cannot be measured by the institution at the time of entry), and work/social constraints (which are beyond the control of both the institution and the applicant) are three major factors that will contribute to the students' academic performance.
The University will measure the first factor, insist upon the second, and allow the judgment of the applicant to prevail concerning the third. While no admission examination is required of students, enrollment is limited each semester. Admission is based upon a first come/first served basis. See below for requirements. For the necessary enrollment and application forms, please see the Registration page.
To be admitted unconditionally, the applicant must (1) be an English-speaking citizen of the United States (or permanent resident), (2) be twenty-one years of age or older, and (3) have successfully completed academic work from an American, accredited college or university. An applicant may apply in person, by mail, or by fax.
In order to be admitted into Amberton University's graduate school, the applicant must (1) be an English-speaking citizen of the United States (or permanent resident), (2) be twenty-one years of age or older, and (3) have earned a bachelor's degree from a college or university accredited by a regional association of colleges and schools within the United States that reflect a baccalaureate degree. An applicant may apply in person, by mail, or by fax.
