Admissions Policies

AUCP is open to applicants of any race, color, religion, nationality, or ethnic origin. AUCP conducts a lottery each year to fill any openings and does not carry a waitlist over from year to year. Priority is given to the children of AUCP staff, current students and their siblings, former students and their siblings, Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington pledging members and friends, and applicants from the previous year’s waitlist. Students from the prior year’s waitlist must submit a new application and fee after September 30.

After the application deadline, applicants will receive notification of their admission or place on the waitlist by late February. After the application deadline, new applications will be considered in the order in which they are received, except those of siblings of enrolled students, which will continue to receive priority.
