Applicants to the EMU aviation program (LOMV) must satisfy the following requirements:
Transfer credit options include the following:
English language proficiency:
EMU is committed to ensuring that our students meet the FAA Aviation English Language Standard (AELS). The AELS minimum level to be considered English proficient is International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Language Proficiency Operational Level 4. All applicants to the EMU aviation program will be evaluated as to this standard upon applying for their Student Pilot Certificate. If they appear not to meet this standard, per FAA policy they will be referred to the local FAA Flight Standards District Office for further evaluation. If the FAA determines that they do not meet the standard, EMU will provide opportunities for training to bring the applicant’s proficiency up to the AELS. Admission to the LOMV program may be conditional, pending completion of language training and issuance of a Student Pilot Certificate. Students who enter the program already having been issued a Student Pilot Certificate, or higher level of FAA Certificate, will already have been evaluated for AELS. However, even though an applicant meets, or previously has met AELS, EMU may require English language training to assure the student’s success in flight training and academic studies.
LOMV applicants must submit the following items:
After EMU receives the application form and assessment of credit earning, all transcripts submitted and the writing sample will be evaluated. An assessment of the credit earning possibilities represented by their list of professional and personal learning experience also will be analyzed.
When all required application documents have been submitted, and if the applicant meets the admission requirements of the LOMV program, the applicant will be invited to attend a formal in-person admissions interview with the EMU Director of Aviation and the Aero-Tech Services Chief Instructor. The admissions interview may be conducted via remote means only under extraordinary circumstances.
After the interview, if it is determined that the applicant has the potential to succeed in the EMU/Aero-Tech Services collegiate aviation curriculum, their admission package will be reviewed by an Admissions Committee. If approved by the Admissions Committee, the applicant will receive a letter of admission to the program. Admission status will be in one of the following categories:
