How Are Students Evaluated?

Final selection is based on application information.

We believe the primary purpose of attending the ATSU-Truman Healthcare Academy should be experiencing the unique intellectual stimulation the program provides. For this and other reasons, including the short duration of the program, the Academy does not offer high school or college credit for courses completed. Students, may negotiate with their local high school officials for credit or advanced placement from their attendance at the Academy.
