Class Prerequisites
Admittance to an Akamai class as a non-degree student is based upon an assumption that the applicant has accomplished the stated pre-requisites for the class, if any, and that the student has the background (attributes and resources) to achieve the objectives of your selected class. The University accepts students whose overall readiness demonstrates a high likelihood for success in the desired classes.

Since permission of the class instructor is an admission requirement, it is possible that the University will ask applicants to be in communication with the class instructor before being allowed to register for a class.

The University expects that you to have completed the appropriate preparatory coursework or subject matter competencies prior to enrollment. These competencies assure the University that you have the necessary understandings, skills, and understanding for successful completion of the desired classes.

Some classes will also have professional prerequisites requiring a minimum number of years of progressively more responsible career experience (or specific licensing). These professional requirements assure the University you are able to approach the subject matter in a mature manner and effectively apply new learning within real world settings. You may be asked to demonstrate you have achieved these foundational elements by submission of official documents to the Office of Admission.

English Language Competencies
As an applicant, you must clearly demonstrate proficiency in written and verbal English language communication skills according to American collegiate standards. You may be asked to complete a telephone communication with a member of the Akamai faculty.

Access to Learning Resources
As part of your application, you must provide assurance that you can successfully access appropriate learning resources including texts, journals, periodicals, databases, video- and audiotapes, online resources, relevant reference materials, and manuals of effective research and writing. These are the required materials through which your mentors will guide you in understanding foundational theories, principles and practices, and advanced concepts in your field of study.

Access to Educational Technology
To be admitted to the University, you must have access to a computer, a telephone, and for the duration of your program have access to a confidential email account and the Internet. The University relies upon these electronic vehicles to support its major teaching and learning activities, as a means to support your effective interaction with mentors and to transmit formal documents, instructions and written assignments. Through distance technologies, you are provided guidance, allowing your instructors to explore with you the subject matter at a depth that is beyond the confines of the traditional classroom.
