What is ALU looking for in an applicant?

At ALU, we take a holistic approach when looking at your application. This means that your grades are as important to us as your leadership potential and fit.


The general eligibility requirements are indications of the academic level we deem necessary to excel in the ALU environment. As such, we strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with them.

However, meeting the general eligibility requirements or falling just short of them, is not the sole determinant of your admission decision.

Our holistic admissions process considers how your leadership potential and fit, in addition to your grades, will not only bring value to the ALU community but also allow you to excel academically given the challenging nature of our programs.

As such, our application is designed to provide you with a platform that will enable you to showcase your unique strengths and background on multiple fronts.
