Adventist University requires that all newly admitted students successfully complete a background check. The cost for undergraduate Main Campus, Distance, and Denver students is $48. Graduate students accepted into a professional program will be required to complete a criminal background check, drug test, proof immunizations, proof of medical insurance, and CPR certification (a program specific requirement) at a cost of $157. Students are required to cover these and any additional costs incurred as a result of this process.
