Anderson University believes that all students deserve a fair chance to succeed. We know success depends on students being prepared to meet the rigors of college-level study, and the ALPHA program is designed to support students who have the potential to succeed but have not fully developed the skills necessary for success in college.
In considering new student applications, the committee for admissions carefully reviews academic records, scholastic aptitude scores, and recommendations. Based upon these factors, we may accept students conditionally for participation in the ALPHA program. As part of the program, students are expected to participate in an orientation designed to help them get ready before the beginning of classes.
During the fall semester, students in this program are limited to enrolling for no more than 12-15 hours, though we recommend 15. In addition, these students must enroll in LART 1010 (Strategies for Academic Success), a three-credit-hour course focusing on academic, study, and life skills necessary for success in college.
