Adult Professional Studies Admission


Mr. T. Josh Fee, Director

Mrs. Kathleen Powell, Associate Director, Orlando

The mission of the Adult Professional Studies (APS) Program is to provide a quality academic program, within a Christian context, that equips nontraditional students to Adult Professional Studies professional excellence in their chosen field.  The Adult Professional Studies Program prepares students for leadership and service to others, cultivates attitudes of lifelong learning, and fosters spiritual development.






Asbury University has a rolling admission policy.  Applications for admission are accepted throughout the calendar year.  Students are encouraged to apply for admission at the earliest possible date.  An early application for admission provides optimal opportunity for financial aid awards, and course selection.  Applications are accepted for the fall or spring semesters.
