Standard Entrance Criteria
Applicants who meet the following standard entrance criteria are considered fully qualified and can immediately enter a certificate or non-degree program.
Applicants who meet these criteria have the potential to successfully complete a certificate program or individual courses taken as a non-degree seeking student. Individuals whose academic credentials fall below any of these entry criteria, however, are very highly encouraged to apply for a certificate or admission in non-degree-seeking status, since waivers of some criteria may be granted by our faculty on an individual basis.
In addition to the certificate programs discussed below, individuals possessing the academic criteria noted above may apply as a non-degree-seeking applicant and, upon admission, enroll in graduate level courses without being admitted into a degree or certificate program. Admission in non-degree seeking status is reserved for those who are interested in course enrollment for professional development, intellectual enrichment, or exploring the possibility of applying for a graduate degree program or certificate program.
Note: A maximum of 12 quarter hours of graduate credit, earned in a non-degree-seeking status and/or transferred from another institution may be permitted for application toward a degree program, once a student obtains acceptance into a degree program.
In addition to the requirements discussed above, there are several academic documents required before AFIT can evaluate your acceptability for admission to an AFIT certificate program or as a non-degree-seeking student.
Active duty Air Force Officers: Please note that AFIT may have some transcripts already on file for Air Force officers or prior students of AFIT. Please email the Admissions Office.
