Many students choose to apply for Early Action. This is encouraged if you are a high school senior and Azusa Pacific University is one of your top-choice colleges. Candidates not accepted for Early Action will be notified that they will be reconsidered for admission under Regular Decision. This will allow time for additional materials to be submitted that might strengthen the overall file (e.g., fall grades and/or additional SAT/ACT scores).
The following admissions deadlines apply to first-year freshmen and transfer students unless otherwise noted. These are firm deadline dates. Applications may be submitted after the Early Action and Regular Decision deadlines, but it cannot be guaranteed that such applications will be given the same consideration as those submitted on or before the Early Action and Regular Decision deadline dates.
Early Action (Freshmen only):
November 15 application deadline
February 15 priority application deadline (recommended deadline)
June 1 final deadline (may be subject to an enrollment waiting list)
Please note that there may be an enrollment waiting list that begins before the final June 1 deadline. Applications should be submitted by February 15 to ensure priority consideration for both admission and financial aid.
October 15 priority application deadline (recommended deadline)
December 1 final deadline (maybe subject to an enrollment waiting list)
Please note that there may be an enrollement waiting list that begins before the final December 1 deadline. Applications should be submitted by October 15 to ensure priority consideration for both admission and financial aid.
Notification of Admission Status
Students applying for Early Action will be notified of their admission status within 3 weeks of completion. Applicants for Regular Decision and those not offered admission through Early Action will receive notification by April. Applications are reviewed and decisions are mailed on a rolling basis. It is to the benefit of each student to complete the application requirements as early as possible.
