Applicants should have a B or better average in their academic courses, especially in mathematics and science.
The program hours are scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. daily.
On field trip days hours may vary because of field trips or other activities. All participants are expected to attend daily.
All classes give assignments and examinations. Participants are expected to do the work required and to maintain a minimum average of 75% in AusPrEP courses. If a first-year student fails to score 75% or better on the first logic examination, the student is subject to dismissal from AusPrEP. Students who complete the assignments should meet this standard.
Unexcused absences from the program or acts of misconduct may result in immediate dismissal from the program. Students with three or more excused absences may be asked to leave the program after individual consultations. Students are expected to abide by HT and AusPrEP rules given by the program staff.
All program functions, except field trips, are held on Huston-Tillotson University Campus. Program staff is available for supervised research and individual consultations.
