The Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality takes into consideration the fact that students admitted to the Institute will bring with them backgrounds widely different in experience and training.  This requires that the process of acceptance into the program and the evaluation of work already completed be as comprehensive as possible.  It is not the wish of the Institute for persons to duplicate work already completed.  Therefore, the Institute will give a limited amount of credit for previous academic work and professional experience in the field of human sexuality.   If the individual can demonstrate and document three full years of work in the field of sexuality, they may be appropriate candidates for the Honors Program.

Applicants who wish to apply for admission to the Honors Program should do so by including a letter with their application packet in which they express their desire to be considered for admission to the program.  This letter should be accompanied with a dossier that provides detailed information concerning the applicant's previous sexuality-related formal education, and work-related experience.  Documentation must be provided as appropriate.

Applications for the honors program will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Academic Dean of The Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality.  Following review, the application may be denied, or the applicant may be awarded a reduction in the number of trimesters required, and/or some additional adjustment of assignments required for the applicant's degree objective.
