Augusta University waived the testing requirement for qualified first-year students during the application process for the Fall 2022 semesterIn the absence of test scores, AU employed a GPA threshold (a minimum high school GPA of 3.4 as calculated by the Office of Academic Admissions based on the Required High School Curriculum) to make admissions eligibility decisions. Incoming Freshman still had to meet all other admissions requirements, which included completing the Required High School Curriculum and providing all other requested documentation. Students below a 3.4 GPA needed to submit SAT or ACT scores meeting the university’s minimum requirement for admission.
