A Letter to Prospective Students from the Director of Admissions
Dear Prospective Student, 
As the Coronavirus and its impact continue to evolve and develop, we remain focused on the health and well-being of our Salus community members, as well as our commitment to you, our prospective students. 
As you may be aware, Salus University was mandated to close its campus and clinical facilities until further notice in order to decrease the spread of COVID-19. While our doors may be closed, the Office of Admissions staff is dedicated to working remotely in order to continue to serve our prospective students.   
As a prospective student you may have many questions and concerns in regards to what will happen next and we want to assure you that we are here to help. We are monitoring our Admissions email account, and this is the best way to reach us at this time. Please do not hesitate to send any inquiries to
