Apply to AU

Take the Next Step Toward Your Success

Aurora University reviews applications for admission on a rolling basis, providing your admission decision when all required application materials are received. AU is test-optional, meaning that the submission of SAT or ACT scores are not required for admission. We offer two convenient ways to submit your application:

Aurora University Application

Common App (freshman and transfer students only)

You can then track the process through your MyAU page, which contains helpful information, including an application checklist you can review once your application has been submitted. If you choose to use the Aurora University Application, your MyAU account will be created automatically once you begin; if you apply through the Common App, you will receive an email with instructions for creating your account.

Online and Graduate Students: Start dates and admission deadlines vary by program and modality. We encourage you to submit your application and supporting materials as soon as possible, and work with your admission counselor on program-specific questions.
