After receiving another record number of applicants for this fall, Auburn University will open its application season for next year’s summer and fall semesters on Aug. 1.

Applications can be submitted at that time online or through the Common App system—a powerful, online college application platform that serves more than 3 million applicants, teachers, counselors and advisors throughout the nation and world.

The application season comes amid another year of record applicants for the upcoming fall semester. For this fall, Auburn received more than 50,000 freshman and transfer applications—a record increase of more than 67% compared to the previous two fall semesters—with more than 31,153 applying through the Common App.

“It is exciting to see how many students are demonstrating a strong interest in joining the Auburn Family,” said Joffery Gaymon, Auburn’s vice president for enrollment. “As we focus on efforts of greater access to underserved areas, we are working hard to build connections and further grow our applicant numbers.”

For summer and fall 2023 semesters, Auburn is continuing to extend some modifications to its existing admissions procedures in light of standardized testing sites remaining limited amid the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic. Students who were able to take a standardized test can use their scores for the admissions process as in years past. Applicants with at least a 3.6 grade-point average who were unable to test will be reviewed holistically through Auburn’s test-optional pathway.

Any valedictorian or salutatorian from an accredited Alabama high school with 50 or more graduates will also qualify for admission. Auburn selects its freshman class through an evaluation that includes a holistic review of the student’s academic performance. First-year students accepted for admission by mid-January receive automatic consideration. A scholarship application is not required.
