Based upon the documents submitted and the discussions with the applicant, MOATEP determines the applicant’s ability to benefit from the course, commitment to the profession, academic preparation, and feasibility of successful completion. MOATEP will notify the applicant with their admission decision after the final submission of all required admissions documents.

*Applicants that do not have a diploma or credential from a regionally accredited US College/University must submit a transcript to a recognized US credentialing agency (e.g. a credentialing agency that is a member of NACES – the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) for credit equivalency evaluation. If the evaluation determines the non-US transcript to be equivalent to a bachelor’s degree or higher in the US, the adult learner will then be eligible for an AMS credential upon successful completion. If the evaluation determines that the non-US transcript is not the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree or higher, then an Associate credential will be awarded. If English is not the applicant’s first language, a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) may also be required.
