Andrews University Acceptance Rate, Average GPA, SAT and ACT Scores

Andrews University was founded in 1874 by three Seventh-day Adventist leaders, John Nevins Andrews, Uriah Smith and James Springer White. It began as the Battle Creek College in Battle Creek, Michigan. The school’s mission was to provide a higher education grounded in Christian principles. In 1909, the school moved to Berrien Springs, Michigan and was renamed Emmanuel Missionary College (EMC). At this time, EMC had six departments: religious education, business education, medical missionary work, music and art, home economics and teacher training.

In 1960s, EMC experienced a period of rapid growth. To reflect its expanded scope of offerings and its growing international reach, the name of the school was changed to Andrews University in 1960. The university offered over 140 academic programs at this time. In addition to traditional undergraduate degree programs such as business administration and nursing science; graduate degrees were also available in fields such as theology and psychology. To accommodate its growth in student population during this period of expansion, several new buildings were constructed on campus including a library building which opened in 1965.

In the following decades Andrews University continued to expand its academic offerings with new departments such as engineering technology being established in 1999. In 2006 Andrews became one of only seven universities worldwide to offer an accredited Doctorate of Ministry program from the Association of Theological Schools. Additionally that year marked the launch of an online learning program offering courses for both undergraduate and graduate students throughout the world who could not attend classes on campus due to geographical or other reasons. Today Andrews University is recognized as one of the leading universities among Seventh-day Adventist institutions globally with over 4500 students enrolled from more than 100 countries around world studying over 200 different academic programs both on-campus and online
