Undergraduate Admission

Admission Criteria

We consider students for regular freshman admission who have graduated from an accredited high school (in a college preparatory curriculum) or have earned a GED credential. We review students' completed admission files on an individual basis.

Students who apply to Aurora University benefit from a rolling admissions policy. AU reviews applications as they are completed and students are notified about admissions decisions throughout the admission cycle. Undergraduate students who have a strong desire to attend Aurora University are encouraged to apply early in their senior year.

How to Apply

  1. Complete the free online application for admission.
  2. Submit your official high school transcripts and record of all previous college work to the Office of Admission and Financial Aid. Official transcripts should be sent to:

    Aurora University
    Office of Admission
    347 S. Gladstone Ave.
    Aurora, IL 60506

    If possible your high school or college can send your official, encrypted transcripts electronically to AU-ETranscripts@aurora.edu.

  3. Submit your official ACT or SAT scores. (ACT College Code = 0950; SAT College Code = 1027)
  4. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You will automatically be considered for academic and need-based scholarships when your application for admission and FAFSA have been submitted. (Federal School Code for FAFSA = 001634)
