COVID-19 Admissions Process

Important Notice to Freshmen Applicants

First-year students applying to ASU for Summer and Fall 2020 may be admitted without an ACT/SAT score if they meet other established requirements for admission.

Albany State is adapting our admissions processes to adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to a more personalized, virtual approach for our applicants following the cancellation of testing services by the College Board and ACT. Students that have already applied are in the process of being contacted about the status of their application. For students that have not applied for the Summer or Fall 2020 terms, the application fee is being waived for the time being. Contact RAM Central if you need assistance applying at 229-500-4358 or admissions@asurams.edu

We understand this is an uncertain time for many people, however, at Albany State, we are determined to use this time to connect with our prospective students and their families. We look forward to speaking with them on the benefits a degree from ASU has to offer.

FEE WAIVER:

Apply as normal and you won't be charged a fee.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SAT OR ACT SCORES

In light of the decision made by the College Board and ACT to suspend the availability of testing during the COVID‐19 virus pandemic, the University System of Georgia has approved alternate procedures for admitting students to the Summer and Fall 2020 Terms.

If you have not taken these tests, we will use your High School Transcript in order to make an admissions decision. Please reach out to us at admissions@asurams.edu if you are having trouble getting your high school transcript sent to the Admissions Office.

IF YOU HAVE SAT OR ACT SCORES

You may still submit your scores for evaluation in the admissions process. We encourage students to go ahead and submit any available scores for course placement purposes.

For those that have already applied and turned in test scores, we are currently working to re-evaluate our applications already on file. We will be reaching out to students with updates as decisions are made. If you would like an update on your file as it stands now, please reach out to admissions@asurams.edu and we will update you.  

CONNECT WITH YOUR COUNSELOR

For questions about this process or the standard processes for ASU admissions, please connect with us at admissions@asurams.edu. Admissions Counselors are eager to set up virtual meetings with incoming and prospective students. They are also available via phone and email. 

CAMPUS TOURS

Due to safety precautions for our staff and prospective students, we are not offering physical tours of our campus at this time. However, we are working to provide a virtual experience. Once we have it complete we will make it available.
