Freshman Admission Process

Asbury operates on a rolling admissions policy and applications for admission are accepted throughout the calendar year. While there are no specific application deadlines, we would encourage you to apply at the earliest possible date.

Application Process

  1. Complete the application - Apply online or download a printable version of the application (PDF).

  2. High School Transcript – Request your high school to mail an official copy of your transcript directly to the Office of Admissions. The transcript should include courses taken, grades earned, class rank (if available), and your cumulative GPA.

    • GED - If you completed the GED (General Educational Development Test) you should submit official copies of these scores in place of a high school transcript.
    • College and University Transcripts (Dual Enrollment) – If you have taken or are taking courses from a post-secondary institution, please submit a transcript from each institution attended. College and university transcripts should be sent directly from the institution to the Asbury University Admissions Office
  3. Test Scores – Send us your SAT or ACT scores. You can request for your scores to be sent to Asbury University when registering for your test. Asbury’s code for the SAT is 1019; the code for the ACT is 1486.

  4. Christian Character Reference (Highly Recommenced for all students)
    The Christian Character Reference (Online Form or PDF) can be completed by anyone who can speak about your character and your relationship with Jesus Christ, if you have one.

If you have any questions regarding the application process or the status of your application, please contact your admissions counselor.
