AUA Announces Agreement with Texas's Schreiner University
The agreement, approved in June 2020 between AUA and Schreiner University, allows undergraduate students who meet AUA's admissions requirements the opportunity to attend AUA College of Medicine upon graduating college. Applicants from Schreiner will be given advanced admissions priority, along with an expedited application review, interview, and decision.
"Schreiner is delighted to form a partnership with AUA, because we see the tremendous opportunities for our students," said Diana K.

"I have been impressed with the success metrics I have seen in AUA graduates, and those closely align with the Schreiner focus on student success. Together, we can do great things to educate tomorrow's physicians."
Graduates of Schreiner will also be eligible for a Preferred Partner Grant, in addition to any scholarships earned at AUA.
"Schreiner University has been serving Texas students for nearly 100 years, and we're honored to count this top-tier university as our first academic partner in the Lone Star State," said Gerald J. Wargo, Jr., AUA's Associate Vice President of Enrollment Management.
