The writing portion of both tests are required. In addition, applicants must submit high school transcripts, letters of recommendation, and an online application. As part of this application, students must write one personal statement essay; they can choose from six prompts included on the application form. Since the school practices holistic admissions, students with slightly lower than average grades and test scores may still be accepted, since the admissions office looks at more than grades and scores--extracurricular activities, strong writing skills, and job/volunteer experience are all helpful additions when applying to Augsburg.
