Your academic achievements are an important part of determining if you are prepared for Austin College academics, but we want to see other achievements and talents, too. We want to learn about your extracurricular or volunteer activities, your involvement with a job or faith community, and the ideas and interests that make you who you are. All of these elements will speak to what you will bring to Austin College.
Academic and Application Requirements
Students should be in good academic standing and taking classes that are challenging. Your transcript should include a nice distribution of courses, in true liberal arts style.
We expect the application, recommendations from counselors and teachers, your admission essay, and an interview with a member of our Admission staff to give us the rest of the story about who you are and what you value.
Due to ongoing standardized testing disruptions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic we encourage students to apply test-optional. We do not encourage a student to risk their health and safety in order to take the SAT or ACT for admission or scholarship consideration.
