In the News: College Admission Process Looks Beyond Test Scores

At Augustana University, our admission process looks beyond standardized test scores.

When it comes to getting into college, is your ACT or SAT score really the be-all and end-all deciding factor? At Augustana, the answer is no.

That's because students who choose AU want more than just a diploma – they want to be part of a community of learners working to build a better tomorrow. That's why our admission process looks beyond standardized test scores to who you are as a person – how you performed in the classroom and your extracurricular activities, community service and  leadership roles.
