Apply in Three Simple Steps
SAT — 1036
ACT — 0057
1. Fill out the online application. It's easy and it's free. You will need to create an account if you are visiting the page for the first time.
2. Submit your ACT/SAT scores. You can have the testing agency submit your test scores directly to AUM, or you can submit your scores yourself. It is important that you use AUM's College Board (CEEB) codes: SAT — 1036; ACT — 0057.
3. Have your high school send your official transcript. Ask your high school guidance counselor to submit your official transcript to AUM. It's ok if you haven't graduated yet, though they will need to submit your official four-year transcript once you graduate. If you have attended any other colleges or universities, or earned dual credits, ask the registrar to send us those official transcripts to this address:

Paying for college is a hot topic among students and parents these days. And it’s true that college is a serious investment in your future. If you’re asking “is college worth the cost?” the answer is still a resounding yes. A college graduate will earn significantly more over the course of a lifetime than someone without a college education. On top of that, finishing your education will open the door to opportunities that simply aren't available without the degree. You'll have more choices, simple as that.
With proper planning — including identifying and taking advantage of grants, student loans and work-study opportunities — there are many ways to finance your college degree that make sense.
In addition to financial aid, AUM offers several scholarships. In fact, we awarded more than $2 million dollars in scholarships last year.
We recommend starting early as students must be admitted by March 1 to be eligible for many opportunities. We also offer an outstanding out-of-state scholarship that can help bring tuition inline with in-state tuition for students meeting the requirements.
The AUM Financial Aid Office provides a variety of services to help you finance your education. From grants to student loans, to college work-study, we offer more than $40 million in financial assistance to students annually.
