An incoming freshman is any senior in high school or a student who has graduated from high school and has not attended another college since graduating.

If you graduated from high school more than five years ago, please see the Life Enrichment requirements.

Augusta University will waive the testing requirement for qualified first-year students for the upcoming Fall 2024 semester.

In the absence of test scores, we will employ a GPA threshold (a minimum high school GPA of 3.4 as calculated by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions based on the Required High School Curriculum) to make admissions eligibility decisions. Incoming Freshman must still meet all other admissions requirements, which includes completing the Required High School Curriculum and providing all other requested documentation. Students below a 3.4 GPA will need to submit SAT or ACT scores meeting our minimum requirement for admission.

Submit official SAT or ACT scores directly from your College Board or ACT account. We don’t require both exams, but students are welcomed to send both. We will superscore and use the highest scores you submit to give you the greatest opportunity.

Submit an official high school transcript. This should be sent electronically directly from your high school. If you’re currently enrolled in your senior year, please include a copy of your current class schedule.

If you’ve taken Dual Enrollment classes, have your college send official transcripts to AU. We will award as much credit as possible, based on our transfer equivalency guide.

Submit any official AP or IB exam scores. Learn more about credit by exam.

Continue checking your application portal as new requirements might be added to your checklist throughout the process. If you have questions about documentation needed, please contact

If you are admitted, you will need to secure your seat by confirming your enrollment and submitting a $200 nonrefundable enrollment deposit.
