When you login to begin your application, pay attention to the modality (Flex or Residential) and start date. You'll be selecting your primary and secondary campus choices under custom questions. We advise you to not fill out multiple applications. As USAHS is only one institution, applicants may only have ONE application total submitted for evaluation (regardless of program or modality). If you submit more than one, refunds will not be issued.
As we have limited seats available, we encourage applicants to apply early and not wait until the designated deadline date to submit. However, Admissions will continue to accept applications past the designated deadlines as long as there are spaces available within the cohort across all campuses.
*Please note: Your application is not sent to Admissions automatically or directly, so be prepared to schedule a review with the corresponding Enrollment Advisor for your primary campus of choice once your application becomes verified. Your designated advisor will review to make sure you have all requirements and give feedback for areas of improvement, if any. Our enrollment team cannot see or review your application until it is in a verified state. Please allow 6-8 weeks from the date of your verification for contact by an Enrollment Advisor.
