Auburn receives record number of applicants for fall 2022, marks its most academically accomplished, diverse applicant pool

Published: December 13, 2021


The demand for an Auburn degree has never been greater, with the university recently topping the 40,000 mark in freshmen applications for fall 2022—an all-time high.

The record number of applications for next fall is a 68.5% increase from those received for fall 2021 and a 155% increase from fall 2020.   


Among the more than 40,000 applications received for fall 2022, there was a 76% increase in students applying from Alabama and a 100% jump in applicants from students with a diverse background. The applicant pool included students from every county of Alabama and every state within the United States.


The acceptance rate for Auburn’s first two early action periods was 24% for a total of 9,600 acceptances. Those students had an average ACT score of 28.6 and an average GPA of 4.21, with less than 7% admitted under the university’s test-optional pathway.
