There are certain disqualifying medical conditions that will prevent you from passing the ACDI dive physical. Please contact admissions if you have any questions about this.

If you’re unable to finalize the physical prior to start date, DIT Admissions will help you schedule the appointment.

The cost of the physical is Approx. $500.00.  In the event that a student receives a disqualifying physical AFTER being accepted and enrolled, any and all monies paid to DIT will be refunded, except for the $100 Application Fee.
