How can I learn about the costs and how to finance my education?

Please talk with an Admissions counselor when you visit to learn the basics of financial aid. Applying for aid is easier than you may think. Find out more at Financial Aid

Can I fax my application or transcripts?

You may fax your application to the Admissions Office at (310) 821-6032. If you would like an Admissions counselor to answer questions about whether your degree or prerequisite courses meet admission requirements, you may fax unofficial copies of your transcripts for this purpose. However, to complete your admission application, AULA must receive official transcripts directly from your past colleges and universities. If you have questions about whether transcripts from all past colleges are required, please contact the Admissions Office.

What happens to my application once it’s complete?

An admissions committee reviews your application and associated materials and then the Admissions Office staff contacts you. If you meet the program’s admissions criteria, you may be asked for an interview. The dean of enrollment services, in consultation with appropriate faculty, decides admission.

Can I meet with someone to find out more about AULA?

Certainly! You’re invited to visit campus or schedule an appointment with an Admissions counselor. For more information, see Visit the Campus or Visit a Class.

Is Antioch University accredited?

Yes, AULA is a fully accredited, non-profit university.  Because Antioch University’s central campus is located in Ohio, Antioch University Los Angeles is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.  Antioch University has held accreditation continuously since 1927.

Can I still apply if I miss a program’s application deadline?

You should apply as early as possible before the deadline. If you miss a deadline, contact the Admissions Office. AULA may extend the deadline if space is available in a program. Another option is to apply for the program and enter in a later quarter, known as a deferred admission.

Can I send application materials in individually?

Yes. Once the Admissions staff receives an application form and your application fee, they will start an application file for you. Materials such as transcripts are often submitted separately, after the online application has been submitted. The file is reviewed once your application is complete, including all supporting documents. The Admissions committee evaluates your application for the quarter of admission you have indicated, unless the program is already full or is not accepting new students that quarter. In those cases, AULA will consider your application for the next available quarter.
