AUA practices holistic admissions. We select students who have the skills and ability to succeed in their studies and for whom AUA is well suited to their educational and career goals. Once you submit your application, it is screened for technical eligibility. If eligible, the Undergraduate Admissions Committee will then conduct a thorough review of your application, which may include inviting you to an interview.

As admissions to AUA is competitive, the committee will consider both academic and personal information including educational background, official entrance exam scores, extracurricular and volunteer experience, a personal statement, and the interview, if applicable.

To learn when admission notifications will be sent, refer to Policy 3. Undergraduate Application Status and Decisions. 

Decisions made by the Admissions Committee are final and cannot be appealed.
