Admissions & Applying

The decision to attend college may be one of the most important ones you'll ever make. Don't worry—we're here to make it easy.

We are so excited that you are considering attending Andrews University!  If you come to us from a country outside the United States, there are a few requirements you need to meet before you can be accepted:

  1. You must be a high school graduate or equivalent, and you must submit proof with a transcript and/or secondary completion exams with a GPA of at least 2.50.
  2. You must have a high school GPA of 2.50 or higher (or an overall GED score at the 50th percentile or higher).
  3. If the ACT/SAT is offered in your country, individual scores of at least the 50th percentile are required.  You must have taken an ACT or an SAT by July 15 to be admitted, unless special permission is granted.
  4. Complete an application by July 15 for fall semester, November 15 for spring semester.  If you’re planning on attending one of our summer sessions, other deadlines apply (go here for more information).
  5. You must submit two recommendations from non-relatives with contact information (it’s part of the application).
  6. Official transcript(s) from any/all colleges you have attended, with a minimum college GPA of 2.50.  If your transcript(s) is not in English, you must send an official translation with your transcript.  Transcripts and exam scores will be evaluated by official academic equivalency rules for the country you studied in. 
  7. You will need to submit a summary of your educational experience.
  8. English proficiency—if English isn’t your first language, you may be required to take an English proficiency exam.  If you don’t meet the requirements, then you’ll have to take English Intensive Courses before enrolling full-time in regular courses.  Check out the bulletin for more information.

English as a Second Language

If you did not pass the English proficiency exam, Andrews offers courses in reading, grammar, composition and oral/aural practice.  If you complete these with a grade of B or higher, and pass the exit exam, you’ll be granted a certificate of completion.  This certificate means that you completed the intensive English Language Program, and you can then transfer into your chosen major.  If you plan to complete an undergraduate Bachelor of Arts can apply for a foreign language waiver.
