To enroll in any Worsham College campus program, a student must have a minimum of twelve (12) college credits.
Associate of Applied Science Degree
For the AAS degree program, an applicant must have taken 12 college credits from a regionally accredited college and achieved a 2.0 or better GPA. The required courses are:
- English 101
- English 102
- Biology (introductory course, no lab required)
Diploma of Mortuary Science
Applicants who already have a college degree, but are lacking one of the courses listed above are encouraged to pursue the Diploma, which does not require any specific courses. Both programs are accredited and share an identical curriculum, with the only substantial difference being this admission requirement.
