Prospective Students

Transform Your Life

You’re a person who won’t settle. You’re motivated — and willing — to take the steps necessary to transform your life. And you know that an education is the best way to get where you want to go.

By choosing to transform your life at Aurora University, you’ll become part of a university community that believes in surrounding you with the support you need. You’ll find people who care about you and your success. And you’ll discover high-quality academic programs, including 40 majors and 34 minors, where you will be certain to discover — or confirm — your passion.

Transformative Faculty
Our award-winning faculty members are master teachers who believe in you. They make themselves accessible so that they’re available in person or by phone, e-mail, or even IM — when you need them.

In the classroom, they’ll make a point of presenting fresh material in creative and innovative ways. And because of our 15:1 student-faculty ratio — and an average class size of just 23 students — you’ll get to know your professors and they’ll get to know you (and how you learn best). Before you know it, you’ll be transformed — into a critical thinker, a powerful writer, an effective communicator.

Strong Partnerships
Your educational experience will be enhanced at AU through partnerships with institutions that are also committed to the core values of integrity, citizenship, continuous learning and excellence. The result: life-changing learning experiences for you.

For example, our partnership with School Districts 129 and 131 allows our elementary education majors to immerse themselves in the elementary school culture. They interact with children, observe teachers and are mentored by faculty members who know what it’s like to be in front of a classroom. Beyond that, they network and make contacts that often lead to the perfect position after graduation.
