Each freshman application will be reviewed with attention paid to high school grade point average, ACT and/or SAT test score,
extracurricular activities, interests, and application question responses. Favorable consideration for admission will be given
to accredited secondary school students whose college standardized test scores, high school grades, and other factors, that give
promise of the greatest level of success in college courses.
Transfer applicants must provide official transcripts from each college attended, including any at which the applicant enrolled
while in high school. A minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale on all college work attempted and eligibility to re-enter the
institution last attended are required to be considered for transfer admission. Transfer applicants who were not eligible for
admission to Auburn when they graduated from high school must present a minimum of 45 quarter hours or 30 semester hours of college
credit. All transfer students who have attempted 45 quarter hours or 30 semester hours of college work must have earned a cumulative
2.5 GPA in at least 30 quarter hours, or 20 semester hours, of standard academic courses as required in Auburn University’s Core
Curriculum, in addition to the overall 2.5 cumulative average
These 30 quarter hours, or 20 semester hours, must include at least one course in each of the following areas:
- English (college-level composition or literature)
Mathematics- approved core mathematics for articulation and general studies (or its equivalent from other institutions)
- Natural Science with a laboratory
Each transfer applicant who has less than 30 semester hours/48 quarter hours, must have a minimum 2.5 cumulative transfer GPA on
course work completed (if any at this point of application) and meet the requirements to be accepted as a freshman. Admission
of transfer students to the University is contingent on availability of space.
International students should first send all of their academic credentials to a professional credentials evaluation agency
for evaluation. If they appear qualified and show promise of success in their chosen fields of study, they will be asked to
make formal application, which must be accompanied by a non-refundable application fee of $60. If applicants present
satisfactory academic credentials, test results, and evidence that they have sufficient funds to meet their college expenses
(there is no financial assistance for undergraduate international students), they will then be sent an acceptance and the form I-20,
the authorization for a student visa. International students are required to purchase the university student insurance plan or
provide evidence of equivalent coverage. This mandatory health insurance may be purchased upon arrival
in the U.S.
Auditing of courses is restricted, but when faculty and facilities are available, individuals who do not seek admission for course
credit may audit a lecture course or the lecture portion of a course upon approval of the dean and the head of the department. A
formal application must be filed. Auditors must register and pay appropriate fees.
Admission to most undergraduate programs as an Unclassified Student may be granted on the basis of the bachelor’s degree from an
accredited college. Unclassified students must submit the same admissions credentials as transfer applicants.
