Early Admission

These are students who have met all the high school graduation requirements and wish to begin their college career in the spring semester. Early admission students will be considered for freshman scholarships for the fall semester. Early admitted students can apply online using the Spring application link.

Submit your Admission Application.

Pay the $50 non-refundable application fee.

Submit your official high school transcript.

ACT and/or SAT scores submitted directly from the testing agency.

Submit a letter of permission from your high school principal or counselor indicating early graduation. 

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.
