Freshman Admission

Admission decisions are based on a variety of factors, including strong secondary school preparation demonstrated by course selection and grades, college entrance examination scores, individual achievements and interests, and other indications of ability to benefit from the college experience.

Admission Requirements

Huntingdon admission is competitive. Each application is evaluated on an individual basis. Decisions about your potential for academic success are based on:

  • Your performance on the ACT and/or SAT
  • Your high school grade point average
  • Your high school course schedule

In general, to be eligible for regular admission, an incoming freshman must have achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 in high school and an ACT score (or SAT equivalent) of 20 on the composite score. The files of candidates for admission who do not meet these minimum thresholds will be reviewed for admission by the Office of Academic Affairs.

How to Apply—Freshmen

Note: Students who are admitted by December 1 for the following fall term and who qualify may apply for consideration for Academic Merit Scholarships.

    • Your transcript should include your senior year class schedule.
    • If you are accepted, you must send a second official transcript after you graduate from high school.
    • If you have earned a GED, you must submit the official score report in addition to your high school transcripts.
  • Submit official ACT or SAT test scores. Your scores may be sent directly from the testing agency or may be included on your official high school transcript.
