* The AUA Math Test was discontinued in July 2018. If you took the test, we will consider valid test scores as proof of math proficiency for the Fall 2020 admission cycle.

Note: After an internal review of the English & Communications program’s goals, learning outcomes, and curricular map, the Undergraduate Admissions Committee has removed automatic denial thresholds for the math proficiency requirement for E&C applicants. While math is an important indicator, we understand that some students who are heavily focused on humanities have not studied math for a long time. We still urge applicants to prepare for the SAT or ACT math sections and do their very best. The UAC will conduct a holistic review of your application which includes looking at your academic performance, test scores, extracurriculars and community involvement, essays, and an interview (if you are invited to one). But there will no longer be automatic denials based on your math score.

 If you are admitted to E&C and petition to change your major during your studies, you must demonstrate math proficiency by retaking the ACT or SAT exams (and scoring at or above the targets) or by successfully taking and completing a math course at AUA. This does not apply to applicants who meet the math target scores for other programs at the time of application.


While we have listed target scores above, we think the 2019 entering class profile may be even more helpful. Of all students admitted during the Fall 2019 undergraduate admissions cycle, the below is a list of their mean test scores. As you’ll note, these scores are slightly higher than the target scores. As admission to AUA is competitive, we urge you to study hard and score as best you can on your entrance exams.
