What is an Alternate Admission Path?


What is an Alternate Admission Path?

With our Alternate Admissions programs, Rowan University recognizes the value and contributions that non-traditional students contribute to the University community. These programs are driven to invite students to become Rowan Profs, based on their unique set of talents, skills or circumstances – even if these students do not meet traditional admissions criteria. Each program has a defined set of requirements for acceptance, as outlined in this section.
