When you log in to begin your application, make sure to pay attention to the modality (Flex or residential) and start date. You'll be selecting your campus choice under custom questions. We advise you to not fill out multiple applications. As University of St. Augustine is only one institution, applicants may only have ONE application submitted for evaluation. If you submit more than one, refunds will not be issued by PTCAS.
As we have limited seats available, we encourage applicants to apply early and not wait until the designated deadline date to submit. However, Admissions will continue to accept applications past the designated deadlines as long as there are spaces available within the cohort across all campuses.
*Please note* Your application is not sent to Admissions automatically or directly, so be prepared to schedule a review with the corresponding Enrollment Advisor for your primary campus of choice once your application becomes verified. Your designated advisor will review to make sure you have all requirements and give feedback for areas of improvement, if any. Our enrollment team cannot see or review your application until it is in a verified state.
