A copy of the appropriate accreditation standards and/or the Commission’s policy and procedure for submission of complaints may be obtained by contacting the Commission directed at the address and phone number noted above.

ATSU-ASDOH School Policies

Immunizations Exemptions

For medical conditions or religious beliefs, a request for exemption from Risk Management requirements will be considered. However, ATSU cannot guarantee the ability to participate in patient encounters and placement in clinical rotations if this exemption is granted. Consequently, students receiving an exemption from vaccine requirements may take longer to complete the curriculum and graduate, or the student may not be able to complete the curriculum and graduate. Students seeking exemptions should submit the Request for Exemption from ATSU Vaccination Requirement form. If students are granted immunization exemptions, they must acknowledge the above risks by submitting to the Director of ICSP an Immunization Exemption Risk Acknowledgment and Additional Disclosures and Requirements form.

International Student Admission

ATSU-ASDOH’s programs are approved by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Student and Exchange Visitor Program to issue I-20 paperwork to non-immigrant students in order to apply for an F-1 Visa.

Prior to application, all applicants should review the program information in this catalog for program-specific requirements and contact Admissions for current information on the application process.
