Applying for Admissions is as easy as 1-2-3!

Use the steps below to begin your journey to becoming an ASU Golden Ram!

In November, 2015, upon the recommendation of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (BORUSG), Albany State University (ASU) and Darton State College (DSC) were approved to begin the process of consolidating into one institution.  In December, 2016, this consolidation was approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) and the BORUSG.  Effective January 1, 2017, the BORUSG officially recognizes ASU and DSC as a consolidated institution with the name of Albany State University.  Current DSC students and new applicants for the Spring 2017 semester (January, 2017) and beyond are now officially recognized as students of ASU.

You may designate ASU as a school to receive your test score results when you register for your exam(s). High schools may also submit an official copy of the high school standardized test score report. Please note, for the scores to be considered official the test date and school seal must be included with the report.

Verification of Lawful Presence

Beginning with the Fall 2011 term, USG institutions were required to verify the lawful presence of any student claiming eligibility for in-state tuition and who was enrolled for the first time at a USG institution.  Per BOR policy, a student’s eligibility for in-state tuition must be verified before that student is designated as eligible.  The following forms of documentation have been approved as sources to verify a student’s eligibility for in-state tuition:

  • An approved FAFSA form or other documentation demonstrating eligibility for federal financial aid
  • A Certified U.S. Birth Certificate showing the student was born in the U.S. or a U.S. territory (a photocopy is not acceptable)
  • A U.S. Certificate of Naturalization (USCIS form N‐550 or N‐570)
  • A U.S. Certificate of Citizenship (USCIS form N‐560 or N‐561)
  • A U.S. Certificate of Birth Abroad issued by the Department of State (DS‐350) or a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (FS‐240)
  • A current U.S. Passport
  • A current Driver’s License issued by the State of Georgia after January 1, 2008
  • A current ID issued by the State of Georgia after January 1, 2008
  • A current military ID (service member only, not dependent)
