Antioch University’s programs are designed to provide a progressive education to prepare students for the complexities of today’s diverse societies. To that end, we conduct an individualized, holistic review of applications for admissions. The review process is designed to help us learn about your strengths and have an opportunity to show you ours.
Our Admissions team and faculty can help you with the application process including finding the right degree program, submitting transcripts, receiving transfer credit and understanding the application process. Our goal is to make the application process as student-friendly as possible. Please reach out and let us know how we can help.
Antioch University Los Angeles offers bachelor’s degrees through a degree completion program. All applicants to the undergraduate degree programs must have completed a combined minimum of one full-time year of college credit (at least 24 semester or 36 quarter units) to be eligible for admission. AULA will transfer up to the equivalent of three full-time years (90 semester units/135 quarter units).
We look for applicants that have the following:
- Undergraduate-level academic skills, including writing and critical thinking skills
Ability to carry out academic work independently, including the potential to engage in some self-directed learning
- Aptitude to work collaboratively with others in an interactive learning environment.
The Admissions Committee identifies strong candidates for the program and will provide support to students with strong potential. An applicant that is qualified, but applies after the program is full for the quarter, will be deferred to the next quarter.
Specific application requirements for each degree are available on the individual degree pages. When you are ready to get started, complete the online application form.
There are two easy steps to apply:
- Complete the Online Application, which includes
- The online application form.

Request official transcripts from every accredited institution from which you have received units of academic credit. You must provide evidence that you have successfully completed 36 quarter units (24 semester units) or more of college-level learning.
Please request that all transcripts are submitted to:
Antioch University Los Angeles
400 Corporate Pointe
Culver City, CA 90230
All application materials submitted become part of an applicant’s file and cannot be returned.
All materials are submitted to the Admissions Office
* For students interested in receiving federal and state financial aid, please note that high school graduation or an equivalency such as a GED is required. Students can also fulfill this requirement by completing six credit hours or equivalent course work toward a degree or certificate, or by receiving a passing score on an exam demonstrating an ability-to-benefit from a higher education. Also, please note that students seeking governmental financial assistance may be asked to provide proof of high school completion or equivalency, as well as transcripts from previous college-level work.
We accept applications on a rolling basis, throughout the year. We recommend that you apply at the beginning of the priority enrollment period in order to assure a spot in the quarter for which you are applying.
Applicants are only evaluated based on their applications, not the applications of other candidates. The Admissions Committee endeavors to identify strong candidates for the program and to support them to become students. An applicant that is qualified, but applies after the program is full for the quarter, will be deferred to the next quarter.
The Master’s degree requirements vary by program. Please refer to the program pages for specific admissions requirements. When you are ready to submit your application, get started here.

Status of application
Once you have submitted your application and the required supporting documents, it’s important that you regularly check your email account for communications from AULA and to track the progress of your application.
One of our Admissions counselors will be in touch with you throughout the application process. At AULA, we pride ourselves on our relationships and the personal attention given to prospective students. You’ll be assigned a counselor who will keep you informed of additional submission materials needed, if any, and the status of your application throughout the admissions process.
If you have not yet submitted all of the required supporting documents, be sure to do so as soon as possible (and before the relevant deadlines). Your application may not be considered without them.
Once your application is complete, or review-ready, it will be forwarded to the appropriate academic program for evaluation and an admissions decision. The Admissions Office will notify you in writing as soon as an admissions decision has been made, both via email and U.S. mail.
An Admissions committee, led by faculty members within the appropriate academic program, reviews your application and associated materials and decides whether or not to recommend admission. If you meet the program’s admissions criteria, you may be asked for an interview. If your application is not accepted, at any stage in the admissions process, we will notify you via U.S mail.
Once your application is review-ready, it takes AULA (on average) less than 30 days to process your application and notify you of an admissions decision. However, for programs that consider applications only after the final deadline, it may be several months before the program makes a decision on your application. For those programs, it may take several weeks from the time the application deadline passes for the Admissions Office to notify you of your admissions decision.
If your circumstances change during the admissions process, it is important that you inform the Office of Admissions so that we can provide the best support to you based on your current circumstances. Please contact the Admissions Office if you have changes in contact information or any other relevant changes in personal circumstances.
If you no longer wish to start your program in the term for which you have applied, it may be possible to “push” your application to a future term. If you no longer wish to start your program in the term for which you have received an offer, you may be able to “defer” your offer to another start date within the same academic year.
If you do not request a deferral by the relevant deadline, your application will be withdrawn and your application file may be permanently removed. If you subsequently decide to apply for the same program, you will need to submit a new application and new supporting documentation.
If your deferral is approved, you will not normally have to resubmit any documents which you have already sent.
Continuation and readmission
Students returning with a Leave of Absence or Enrollment Maintenance Status from the Registrar may enroll directly with no involvement of the Admissions Office.
Students who have not enrolled for two or more consecutive terms and wish to return to AULA after regular withdrawal, administrative withdrawal, or academic or disciplinary suspension must re-apply through the Office of Admissions.
Returning students who are required to re-apply must submit the application form by the application deadlines. All supporting evidence (including official transcripts from all colleges attended since leaving AULA) must be submitted so that it can be reviewed in a timely manner.
