Any woman who has been accepted for membership by a Catholic religious community can apply for admission to Assumption College for Sisters, regardless of race, color, or national origin. Women who are in a serious discernment process, with the recommendation of a vocation or spiritual director, may also apply, though they are not yet part of a formation program. Lay persons may register for theology and philosophy courses and may audit any other courses.
The prospective student will submit to the registrar her completed application form, a transcript of all high school work, a college transcript if she has taken college courses, and the immunization records (MMR) required by the State of New Jersey. A student born prior to 1957 is exempt from the immunization requirement. Resident international students follow a more detailed policy for admission.
Assumption College for Sisters is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant students. International Sisters are required to have a high school diploma or its equivalent in order to apply. They should also have at least a beginner’s knowledge of English, which will be supplemented while in residence at ACS. Perpetually professed members of religious communities from developing countries may apply for full scholarships to ACS and reside at the College. The following procedures must be followed:
The Academic Dean evaluates college transcripts to determine which courses may be accepted toward a degree from ACS. To qualify, courses must fulfill the degree requirements of this College and rate a minimum grade of C. A World Educational Services (WES) evaluation is required for transcripts from colleges outside the United States.
ACS gives college credit to students who have received a rating of three in an Advanced Placement Test. It also honors high school dual-credit courses when applicable.
With the approval of the Academic Dean, anyone interested may audit classes. Half tuition is charged for those who audit a complete course.
