Transfer Online Pre-Orientation Modules and Priority Registration Deadline

The pre-orientation modules will help students complete the transfer plan of study and prepare students to register for classes when their registration time ticket opens. These modules will also help facilitate communication with academic advisors. At Auburn University, registration is assigned by specific time tickets based on the number of hours a student has completed.

For spring semesters, time tickets begin opening in early November and for summer and fall semesters, time tickets begin opening in early April. In order to be ready to register when their time tickets open, students should complete the pre-orientation modules and pay the enrollment deposit by these dates:

Summer Term: March 1
Fall Term: March 1
Spring Term: October 1

If the modules are completed after these dates, it may take the academic advisors longer to respond due to the increased demand during the registration period. We encourage the completion of the modules as soon as possible because the longer students wait the fewer class options will be available.

It will take time for academic advisors to review students’ information and send suggested classes after the modules are completed. Completing the pre-orientation modules and paying the enrollment deposit by these dates will assure academic advisors have the necessary time to review the information before time tickets open. Students should allow at least seven business days for academic advisors to review information.

High School GPA and Curriculum
While the decision is based upon test scores and high school GPA, students must have completed course requirements in their high school curriculum. These include:

  • English - 4 years
  • Social Studies - 3 years
  • Mathematics - 3 years
    This must include 1 year of Algebra I, 1 year of Algebra II, and one year of Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, or Analysis
  • Science - 2 years
    This must include 1 year of Biology and 1 year of a Physical Science

Transcript evaluation utilizes a 4.0 scale. A weighted GPA is utilized when included in the high school transcript. If a student attends a high school whose system does not provide a weighted GPA on a 4.0 scale, the high school may include a cover letter with the transcript indicating the student's weighted GPA.

ACT/SAT

Admission standards are based on the quality of your high school grades as well as your score on either the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). Auburn University requires that all incoming freshmen provide test scores from either the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). No preference is given for either test and the highest score will be used for admission purposes. 

The institution number for the ACT is 0011 and the number for the SAT is 1005. 

Exactly what ACT or SAT score and grade point average will it take to earn freshman admission?

The answer will depend on the number and quality of students who apply this year. It also depends on our evaluation of each applicant's credentials. In addition, we have to take into account the limited number of places in the Freshman Class of 2019. Competition for these spaces will ultimately set the standards.
