AIC maintains a rolling admissions process. Beginning in November, the Admissions Committee meets once each month to review applications. Priority is given to applications filed by or before April 1 for Fall admissions and by November 1 for Spring admissions. Applications received after the priority deadline will be considered if space is available. All applications received prior to April 1, will be notified by the AIC Admissions Committee by or before May 15. Early applications may be notified much sooner.

The admission requirements for the undergraduate program include proof of graduation (official transcripts) from an accredited high school, or a passing grade on the General Educational Development (GED) test. A college entrance examination (SAT or ACT) is also required. Students will be expected to have obtained a minimum composite score of 21 on the ACT or 480 on Evidence Based Reading and Writing and 530 on Mathematics, section of the SAT, and/or possess a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75. Upon the recommendation of the Admissions Committee, a student not meeting these criteria might be considered for probationary admission on an individual case-by-case basis. Such students will be provided appropriate academic and/or other support-services not to exceed one semester and shall demonstrate subsequent satisfactory academic progress.
Applicants who are not proficient in English, will be asked to take the TOEFL. Based on the TOEFL score and possible consultation with the candidate, the Admissions Committee will make the decision.
