High School GPA and Curriculum

While the decision is based upon test scores and high school GPA, students must have completed course requirement in their high school curriculum. These include:

English - 4 years, Social Studies - 3 years,Mathematics - 3 years.This must include 1 year of Algebra I, 1 year of Algebra II, and one year of Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, or Analysis Science - 2 years.This must include 1 year of Biology and 1 year of a Physical Science

Transcript evaluation utilizes a 4.0 scale. A weighted GPA is utilized when included in the high school transcript. If a student attends a high school whose system does not provide a weighted GPA on a 4.0 scale, the high school may include a cover letter with the transcript indicating the student's weighted GPA.


Admission standards are based on the quality of your high school grades as well as your score on either the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). Auburn University requires that all incoming freshmen provide test scores from either the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) . No preference is given for either test and the highest score will be used for admission purposes.

The institution number for the ACT is 0011 and the number for the SAT is 1005.

Exactly what ACT or SAT score and grade point average will it take to earn freshman admission?

The answer will depend on the number and quality of students who apply this year. It also depends on our evaluation of each applicant's credentials. Plus, we have to take into account the limited number of places in the Freshman Class of 2015. Competition for these spaces will ultimately set the standards.
