Undergraduate Accelerator

Important Dates

Students may apply to enter the Undergraduate Accelerator three times during the year: fall, spring, and summer. Students who would like to take additional English-language courses before they progress to their academic careers may enter through AU's pre-sessional English-language program before progressing to the Extended Accelerator Program.

See the following tables for important dates such as application deadline, move-in date, and program start date. For other questions regarding the American University Undergraduate Accelerator schedule, please email us at: admissions@auaccelerator.com.

*This is the deadline to submit all documents stated on your offer letter and is required for both academic acceptance and I-20 issuance.  All necessary items must be received by admissions on or before this deadline or the student will be unable to enroll for the intended semester and will be encouraged to defer enrollment to the following semester. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, as there are a limited number of spaces available.

Note: dates are approximate and subject to change.
