Student Physical Location Policy:
American College of Health and Sciences only offers residential programs at its campus in Margate, Florida. As such, all potential and current students must have a Florida physical address at the time of admissions and throughout the program of study. Students are responsible for promptly notifying the College of any changes to their physical address, with updates submitted in writing using the Address Change Notification Form. If a student moves to a new Address (within or outside the state) during their enrollment at ACHS, they must fill out and submit this form to inform the institution of their new address. Students who no longer reside in the state of Florida will have to withdraw from the program.
Disclosure of Licensure Requirements
What Students Need to Know About Professional Licensure
Many students attend college to earn a certificate and/or degree that prepares them for a specific field such professional nurse (RN), licensed practical nurse (LPN), or one of the many other occupations regulated by State and/or other government entities. States and other government entities have established standards of practice for the occupations or professions they have chosen to regulate, and they provide legal permission to practice those professions only to individuals who meet those standards. This is called professional licensure: professions for which people need to meet certain criteria in order to practice in that field.
