Admissions Information

At Auburn University, students have many options for application deadlines, depending upon admissions track and convenience. Students who apply from October 1 through February 15 with excellent academic records are considered automatically through Early Action. Admissions decisions are made starting October 15 and students are accepted on a weekly basis until mid-February. The Early Action admission process is based solely on academic ability, as demonstrated by high school GPA and test scores.

For applications submitted after the Early Action window, there are three rounds of admissions decisions which are released beginning November 15. The regular admissions incorporate academic scores and other factors, as submitted by the applicant. The deadline for the first round of admissions is November 1, and by November 15, all applicants adhering to this date will receive a response. Some applicants will be notified that their application is still being reviewed, and will be given a decision later. The deadline for the second round of admissions is December 1, and like the first round, some applications will continue to be evaluated. The deadline for the last round is February 1, and by February 15 all applicants will receive notice of the admissions committee's decisions.
