THE EXCLUSIVENESS OF AMBERTON UNIVERSITY
No institution, no matter how large or well funded, can be all things to all
people. In fairness to itself and its constituents, a university must
acknowledge its focus and mission.
Amberton University is an exclusive institution; this exclusiveness incorporates
the following general principles:
- Amberton University is a private, not-for-profit, Christian principled
- The University primarily offers upper level (Junior/Senior) and graduate level
programs leading to bachelor and master degrees.
- The degrees have been designed exclusively for mature, working adults.
Admission and enrollment to Amberton University are restricted to (see for
- Mature adults over 21 years of age;
- Individuals who are fluent (reading, speaking, and writing with facility and smoothness) in the English language;
- Individuals who are computer literate and have e-mail and Internet access;
- Individuals who have satisfactorily completed academic work from a U.S.A. accredited university recognized by Amberton;
- Individuals who are financially qualified to meet the costs of education without benefit of financial aid;
- Individuals who seek a university academic environment that is relevant, practical, and germane and who do not seek the “student life” trappings associated with traditional institutions (dormitories, sports, social clubs, etc.).
To meet the unique needs of working adults, Amberton University offers classes
and programs through the classroom lecture method as well as through distance
Amberton University controls enrollment by restricting the number of classes
offered in a program and the number of students allowed to enroll in each class.
As a matter of educational practice, Amberton University does not do for the
student what one would reasonably assume a mature, adult, collegian student can
do for him/herself.
For all applicants who are qualified for admission and all students who seek
enrollment, Amberton University allows, without partiality, participation on a
first-come, first-served basis.
