The Unviersity System of Georgia has temporarily changed the admission criteria for USG institutions.

In response to the cancellation of spring SAT and ACT testing dates, Augusta University applicants for Summer and Fall 2020 do not need to submit ACT or SAT scores for admission consideration.

First-year students applying to Augusta University for the Summer and Fall 2020 semesters can be admitted without submitting an ACT or SAT score if they meet all other admissions requirements, have completed the Required High School Curriculum and provided other requested documentation.

The University System of Georgia authorized this change on March 19.

The Augusta University Office of Academic Admissions is still fully operational and available to assist prospective students and applicants via phone or email.

Visit the Office of Academic Admissions website to learn about upcoming virtual events.
