    The university considers applications on an individual basis and is subject to competition. American University admissions is selective with an acceptance rate of 31% (Fall 2022). AU believes in a holistic admissions process and that every applicant is more than the sum of their grades and test scores. The admissions committee expects students to be aware of things inside and outside of a classroom.
