Admissions

Transfer Students

The undergraduate admission decision for transfer students is based upon cumulative transfer GPA and earned credits from all prior undergraduate coursework. If courses are in progress at the time of application, the student will be admitted conditionally a final and official college/university transcript must be sent to the Office of Admissions upon completion.

Attendance at all institutions must be reported, regardless of whether credit was earned or whether transfer credit is desired. Failure to report or attempt to misrepresent all previous academic work will be considered sufficient cause for rejection of an application or for rescindment of an applicant’s acceptance to AUK.

Transcripts from institutions with an education system different from the American system may be required to be sent to Josef Silny & Associates consultants. If required, it is the responsibility of the student to contact them and send the transcripts. Contact: Website: www.jsilny.com, Email: info@jsilny.com
