2021 CMHC Admissions PowerPoint

The admissions process for the CMHC program includes the use of a rubric. The rubric categories include cumulative grade point average (CGPA), content and writing style of the personal statement (essay), letters of recommendation, professional and personal experience related to the coursework and field, and an in-person interview. The review committee consists of four CMHC faculty members and the CMHC Clinical Field Site Coordinator. 

Admission to the School of Applied Health Sciences (SAHS) is selective and limited to those students who have demonstrated the potential for successfully completing the program. An admission decision is based on an evaluation of an applicant’s previous coursework and their grades earned*, a written personal statement, a professional resume, individual experience within the field, and three letters of recommendation. Where applicable, official GRE scores and a personal interview are also utilized in final evaluation for admission. 

* An applicant with a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited university whose cumulative GPA is less than 3.0 but higher than 2.75 is required to submit his/her official GRE scores reflecting a total score of 290 on the GRE exam. 

If you decide to apply, please have official transcripts sent to the Office of Admissions at Jacksonville University. JU requires applicants to send transcripts from every college/university attended, even if the course resulted in a drop, withdrawal, failure or if the course was transferred to another school. For information on how to send your transcripts to JU, please visit the Registrar's JU transcript instructions site.
