Selection: AUA practices holistic admissions. Each application is initially screened for technical eligibility. The admissions committee then conducts a thorough review of each eligible application. Part of this process may include an interview. As admissions to AUA is competitive, the committee considers both academic and personal information including academic history, graduate admissions test scores, the statement of purpose, recommendation letters, and the interview, if applicable. Decisions made by the admissions committee are final and cannot be appealed.
