General Admissions Statement
Admission to Andrews University is available to any student who meets the academic and character requirements of the University and who expresses willingness to cooperate with its policies. Because Andrews University is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the majority of its students are Seventh-day Adventist Christians. However, no particular religious commitment is required for admission. Any qualified student who would be comfortable within its religious, social, and cultural atmosphere may be admitted. The University does not discriminate on the grounds of race, color, creed, disability, national or ethnic origin, sex, marital status or disability.

Admission to one of the schools of Andrews University does not guarantee admission to a specific department or program within a given school. Transfers from one school to another may be made when the student meets the admission requirements for that school and has the consent of the deans involved.

All undergraduate students seeking a degree must show proof of completing secondary school (high school transcript, or international equivalent ), provide ACT and SAT scores or other nationally recognized examination results, give the names and contact information of two non-relatives who are willing to provide recommendations, and provide all official college transcripts from all institutions that they have attended.
