AULA seeks qualified candidates who will contribute to building a student body that is diverse in gender, ethnicity, age, class, physical differences, learning styles, sexual orientation, professional backgrounds, and community experiences. In evaluating candidates, AULA examines the quality and content of previous academic work. However, AULA recognizes that an individual’s current capacities may not be fully or adequately reflected in grades earned at an earlier age or in fields unrelated to the applicant’s present interests. Except for specific instances, Antioch University Los Angeles does not require standardized tests for admission. International applicants whose native language is not English must often complete the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), IELTS, or CELSA exam. Foreign applicants who hold a valid degree for which the language of instruction was English may be exempt from the TOEFL, IELTS, or CELSA requirement. Candidates must contact the Admissions Office in order to verify if the applicant’s background will exempt them from this requirement.
For all AULA programs, application materials become part of the applicant’s file and cannot be returned. Once all proper materials are received, the file is ready for review by an Admissions Committee for the program. Some programs require a face-to-face interview as part of the admissions process. Admissions decisions are communicated in a letter from the Admissions Office. Application materials remain active for three years from the date of receipt, with the exception of recommendations, which remain active for one year. After one year, applicants for all programs are required to submit a new application fee in order to reactivate the application for admission; additional requirements may apply for processing reactivated applications.
