Admission Requirements

AAON offers accessible, affordable, and innovative learning opportunities. The admission requirements have been designed to reflect this philosophy.

To ensure the quality and consistency of the learning experience at AAON, we limit the number of admissions each intake. Limited capacity in each program means that places are sought after on a competitive basis. Although you may be eligible for admission, AAON offers places on a “first-in” basis.
