Program Admission Requirements
The established guidelines for admission to an academic program are detailed on the University website (www.rm.edu).
- All applicants must demonstrate a previous record of successful academic achievement and the motivation to pursue graduate-level education.
- In some program requirements, applicants must be professionally licensed to practice.
- In some program requirements, applicants must have the ability to meet the programmatic onsite requirements.
- In some program requirements, applicants must be a US citizen or resident.
- International students must meet the specific program guidelines for international students in the particular program in question.
- Applicants must have a reasonable level of technology literacy before applying to the desired program.
Full Disclosure Requirement for all Programs
Incomplete or falsified admissions information constitutes grounds for a refusal to admit, admission revocation, immediate dismissal, loss of credit, and forfeiture of all tuition and fees paid.
Confidentiality for all Programs
Admissions materials are kept in strict confidence and processed confidentially. Once the application materials are received, these materials are the University’s property and will not be returned to the applicant. All applicant materials are kept for one year following receipt if the applicant does not enroll. Application materials for enrolled students are maintained indefinitely.
Programs that participate in a centralized application service (CAS) will follow published application deadlines for each respective program.
For programs that apply directly through the university application portal, admission decisions are generally made within a few days from the time the application and all supporting materials are received. Applicants are encouraged to submit their application well before the final application deadline.
To be considered for admission, an applicant must submit his/her application before the final application deadline.
Notice of Admission Decisions
Admission decisions are based on a comprehensive review using all required application materials and information submitted. The admission review reflects a holistic consideration of the applicant’s qualifications, based on all evidence provided in the application, and viewed in the context of the applicant’s academic and personal circumstances. The program’s Admission Selection Committee makes the admission decision.
All admission decisions are final and transmitted to the Admissions Office for applicant notification. The admissions process is competitive. If accepted, applicants are given a period of time to consider the offer and then confirm or decline enrollment.
Applicants confirm enrollment by submitting the necessary documents and a non-refundable enrollment deposit by the established deadline. The non-refundable enrollment deposit is applied to the student’s first semester of tuition.
Accepted applicants may be permitted for a one-time admission deferral on a case-by-case basis, generally only for extenuating circumstances. If granted, the deferral is for the next cohort start only; the student is expected to have accepted Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions’ offer of admission and then confirm their enrollment. Accordingly, a student who requests and is approved to defer enrollment is considered under an obligation to enroll and attend the program for the next semester’s start.
Suppose the accepted applicant fails to satisfy the conditions of the deferral. In that case, the offer of admission may be rescinded, prompting the need to re-apply if the applicant wishes to be considered for future admission.
To begin the deferral process, an accepted applicant must contact the Admissions Office at [email protected] and specify the intent to defer their enrollment.
If declining the offer of admission, the accepted applicant needs to contact the Admissions Office at [email protected]. A record of the accepted applicant’s decision to decline enrollment is required.
The Admissions Office reserves the right to rescind an offer of admission for a variety of reasons, such as:
- A lapse in judgment or integrity, such as cheating or illegal activity;
- No longer meeting qualifications, a significant change in pre-enrollment coursework grades;
- Misrepresenting any facts or work in the application, including grades, test scores, essays, etc;
- An admitted student has accepted admission both to the University and to another graduate program for the same period of enrollment; and
- Failure to respond to the Office of Admission promptly, upon repeated attempts.
Program Cancellation or Postponement
The University reserves the right to cancel or postpone a program before the published semester start date.
