Conditional Admission is available to students who are academically admissible to Felician, but do not meet our minimum English language requirements. Students may apply for conditional admission and attend the ACES program to meet our English requirement. Students must successfully complete Level 5 of ACES and pass an internal proficiency test before being able to matriculate into a degree program.
Conditional admission is available for all our bachelor’s degree programs.
Our MBA and M.S. in Healthcare Administration programs allow students to apply for conditional admission, pending both completion of the ACES program and submitting a qualified GMAT (MBA) or GRE (MSHA). This will allow students to prepare for the examinations in the U.S. while studying English at ACES. Students must have equivalent to at least a 3.0 GPA in their bachelor's degree in order to be considered for this option. Students will not be allowed to matriculate into the programs until both the English and GRE/GMAT requirements are met and the department deems you admissible. Conditional admission is available for all other Graduate programs as long as all admission requirements are met for the specific program.
We also offer conditional admission to undergraduate students who are studying or intend to study at an ELS language center in their English for Academic Purposes program. Students must submit an ELS Level 112 completion certificate to meet our English language requirement. To find a center, please visit www.els.edu.
