Prospective students 
  • We are currently offering in-person campus tours and visits. Check out our visit page to schedule your trip. 
  • We will host admission events in-person and online during the 2021-22 academic year. Visit our admission events page to learn more about specific events. 
  • If you’re looking to get a feel for our campus and community from afar, check out some of our video tours and online informational events and workshops for prospective students. 
  • Want to talk to us? Schedule a one-on-one online interview with an admission staff member. We love getting to know you, and we’re always happy to answer your questions about COA.

  • Many colleges have announced their plans to no longer require standardized test scores for applicants. COA has always been “test optional,” so standardized test scores (SAT or ACT) are never required of our applicants. 
  • If you’re unable to get a transcript from a prior school due to COVID-19 related closures, let us know—we will work with you. 
  • Beginning with the 2020-21 application cycle, there is no fee to apply for admission.
