Please contact Gia Coleman at (508) 849-3450 or gcoleman@annamaria.edu for further information or to schedule your audition or portfolio review.

Deadlines

Anna Maria College adheres to a rolling admission policy. There is no absolute deadline. Applications are reviewed throughout the year. However, interested students are strongly encouraged to complete their application by March of their senior year if applying for fall admission or by April if applying as a transfer student. This is particularly important for those who intend to apply for financial aid as there are firm deadlines for certain types of assistance. If applying for admission to the spring semester, all students are encouraged to complete their applications at least one month prior to the beginning of the semester.

 

Advanced Standing/Placement

Students may be granted advanced standing for credits earned in a variety of ways beyond those earned at other accredited postsecondary institutions.                                                

          Advanced Placement: Students who have taken an Advanced Placement course or courses in high school and earned a grade of 3 or better on the examination may apply for college credit. The number of credits will be determined by the specific course(s). The submission of official test scores is the responsibility of the student. The College will evaluate and notify the student of credit granted once scores are received. Refer to www.apcentral.collegeboard.com for further information about Advanced Placement

          CLEP (College Level Examination Program): CLEP is a national examination program that measures knowledge learned in specific subject areas through life and/or work experiences. A minimum score of 50 is required. Credit will be granted upon receipt of an official score report. Refer to www.collegeboard.org/clep for further information about CLEP.


Secondary School Preparation

In reviewing applicants for admission, the secondary school record is typically the most important credential in the evaluation. AMC recommends a traditional college preparatory program of study as the most appropriate preparation for admission.

 
 Suggested Program of Study:

4 years of English

3 years of Mathematics (Algebra I,II and Geometry)
2 years of social sciences
2 years of a foreign language
2 years of a laboratory science (Chemistry is required of all nursing candidates)
3 electives

 

Fifth Year Option to Earn a Master's Degree

What is it?
The Fifth Year Option at Anna Maria College allows undergraduate students in good academic standing a unique opportunity to earn both their undergraduate and graduate degrees in five years.

The benefit to the student is two-fold:

1. The two graduate courses will be counted toward fulfilling the undergraduate degree requirements.

2. If the student achieves a grade of B or better in each course, he/she will be admitted to the graduate school with an Advanced Standing status.

*Advanced Standing: a student will be credited with having already earned six graduate credits, two courses, toward a graduate degree at Anna Maria College.

Students who wish to pursue the Fifth Year Option must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or greater and have earned 90 credits or more.
How does it work?
Students have an opportunity to plan undergraduate studies in a way that allows them to begin graduate work in the senior year. Students add two graduate courses to their senior coursework and it is these two courses that are placed on the master's transcript.

Upon successful graduation from the undergraduate program, the senior year coursework will be reviewed and a determination about admission into the graduate program will be made. Upon final admissions, the student will be sent a formal letter of acceptance into the graduate master's program.

What are the Fifth Year Program options?
> Business
> Counseling Psychology
> Criminal Justice
> Justice Administration
> Education
> Emergency Management
> Fire Science
> Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety
> Pastoral Ministry
> Visual Art
How do I apply?
1. Meet with your advisor to confirm your eligibility in the program and determine the two graduate level courses
    that you will be taking in the upcoming year.


2. Complete the paperwork below and return it to the Admission office, located in Foundress Hall.  They will
   forward as appropriate.


3.  Fill out a Fifth Year Option Verification form, and have your advisor sign it.

4.  The standard Graduate School application must be completed. Your application fee will be waived, as well as 
     letters of recommendation and transcripts. Any additional admissions requirements as laid out by individual
     programs (i.e. resume, portfolio, interview, etc.) will be required.

Who do I contact for more information?
Students seeking further information regarding the Fifth Year Option should contact their Advisor or the Graduate Admission Office at cegradadmissions@annamaria.edu or (508) 849-3234.
