Freshman Admission

Admission to Huntingdon College is granted on a rolling basis for the fall and spring semesters. Prospective freshmen are encouraged to apply as early as possible after completion of the junior year of high school.

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.

Explore Freshman Admission

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.

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

  • Submit your Application for Admission.
  • Request official transcripts from your high school. Note that:
    • 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.
    • Huntingdon’s ACT code is 0018
    • Huntingdon’s SAT code is 1303
  • Begin the financial aid application process after October 1 of the year prior to fall admission. See fafsa.ed.gov to get started.

Transfer Admission

Huntingdon College welcomes applications from students who wish to transfer from other regionally accredited colleges and universities. Transfer applications are reviewed and admission decisions are reached after the required information has been received by the Office of Admission.

If you have completed at least 24 semester hours of non-remedial coursework at an accredited college or university, you may apply for admission as a transfer student. If your academic background does not fit this definition, you may apply for admission as an incoming freshman.

Explore Transfer Admission

If you have completed at least 24 semester hours of non-remedial coursework at an accredited college or university, you may apply for admission as a transfer student. If your academic background does not fit this definition, you may apply for admission as an incoming freshman. In order to be eligible for regular admission as a transfer student, you must have earned a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on all work attempted at the post-secondary level. If you have earned a cumulative GPA below 2.5, your file will be reviewed by the Provost’s office for an admission decision. In addition to the grade point average requirement, you must be in good academic standing at all institutions previously attended. Transfer applicants under academic or disciplinary suspension or dismissal from a previous institution cannot be admitted to Huntingdon until such sanctions are lifted.
  • Submit the Application for Admission
  • Submit official transcripts from all colleges attended. If you are enrolled at a college, a second transcript indicating completion of the term and eligibility to return to the institution will be required.

Transfer Scholarships are determined by a student’s cumulative academic grade point average. For students who have attended more than one post-secondary institution, the academic grade point average will be calculated from all colleges and universities attended.

You may begin the need-based financial aid process after October 1 of the year prior to fall admission.

As a transfer student, up to 64 semester hours earned at a two-year institution or 90 semester hours earned at a four-year institution may be credited toward the 120-semester-hour degree requirement at Huntingdon College. Transfer credit is granted for any course deemed comparable to a course offered for academic credit at Huntingdon College or of such a nature that it would carry academic credit if it were offered at Huntingdon, provided that the student has earned a grade of “D” or better, or, in the case of a course taken on a “Pass/Fail” basis, a grade of “P” (the “P” must be equated to a “D” or better). Transfer credit is evaluated by the Huntingdon Registrar’s Office once a student has been selected for admission and has confirmed an intention to enroll. No student may assume that credit will be given for work at other institutions until a written statement of credit accepted is received by the student from the Huntingdon Registrar’s Office.

Transfer Q & A

International Admission

Huntingdon College is pleased to receive and review applications for admission from international students. Since correspondence for international admission can be extensive and time-consuming, it is strongly recommended that students apply by May 15 for the fall semester and by October 15 for the spring semester.

Explore International Admission

Huntingdon is authorized under the United States Immigration and Nationalization Act to enroll non-immigrant alien students. International students are required to follow the prescribed admission procedures below and to take either the Test of English as a Foreign Language examination (TOEFL), the American College Test (ACT), or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), and to provide an official statement of financial resources sufficient to support educational costs.

Academic Preparation

An international freshman applicant must have above-average grades (equivalent to a minimum of 2.40 grade point average based on a 4.00 grading scale) in a balanced academic curriculum from the secondary school. An international transfer student must be in good academic standing and eligible to return to the post-secondary institution last attended.

Entrance Examinations

Huntingdon does not offer courses in English as a Second Language (ESL) and therefore requires evidence of English proficiency for consideration of admission. If the native language is not English, proficiency should be substantiated by a minimum score of at least 500 on the written Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or 173 on the computer-based TOEFL; an SAT combined score of 930 with a minimum SAT verbal score of 490; or an ACT composite score of at least 20, with a minimum English subscore of 20.

Upon completion of the application sequence described below, your credentials will be evaluated, and a decision will be communicated back to you as quickly as possible. International students must submit the following items:

  • International Student Information Packet (PDF). All sections, including financial information, must be completed, certified, and signed;
  • International Student Online Application
  • Official academic transcripts from all secondary schools (high schools) and, if applicable, post-secondary schools (colleges or universities) attended. Transcript(s) in languages other than English must include official, certified English translations, authentic verifying statements, and signatures. Note: Huntingdon makes every effort to evaluate the transcripts of international students. However, in some cases it may be necessary to obtain a certified evaluation of the transcript(s). If such an evaluation is required as part of the admission process, transfer of credit evaluation, or athletic eligibility certification process, the student must bear the cost of this professional evaluation. Information regarding this process may be obtained by contacting the Office of Admission;
  • Entrance examination scores (i.e. TOEFLACTSAT) must be sent directly from the testing centers to the Office of Admission.

International students must have sufficient funds to cover tuition, fees, textbooks, living expenses, transportation expenses, and other incidental expenses while attending college in the United States. Applicants should be realistic in determining the extent of their personal financial resources relative to the total cost. Documented evidence of means of financial support must be provided before admission decisions can be made.

Federal and state financial aid is not available to international students. Institutional financial aid may be available to highly qualified students.

Once you receive your letter of acceptance as an international student, you must confirm your intention to enroll.

  • Complete the required enrollment forms.
  • Submit a deposit equal to one semester’s tuition, fees, room, board, books, health insurance coverage (required of all international students), and miscellaneous expenses, less any financial aid that would be applied to the first semester of attendance.

Upon receipt of the above items, a Certificate of Eligibility Non-Immigrant F-1 Student Status (Form I-20A) will be mailed to you.

Huntingdon is a residential campus. Policies and procedures related to living on campus and options to live off-campus can be found in the Residential Life section of the website. International students should keep in mind that residence hall rooms are assigned based on date of receipt of the completed Housing Forms and all deposits.

International students must comply carefully with all nonimmigrant alien requirements as stated in the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service Laws and Regulations.

After the College has confirmed your eligibility for admission and has granted acceptance to the College, and after you have paid the International Student Deposit, the College will issue the Form I-20A and send it to you.

Upon receipt of the Form I-20A, you should apply for a student visa (F-1). Documented evidence of financial support must be attached to the Certificate of Eligibility when applying for the student visa at the United States Embassy or Consular Office. The time required for passport processing can be quite lengthy. It is important to apply for the passport well in advance of your departure date.

A Travel Information Form will be enclosed with the I-20A. The completed form should be returned to the Office of Admission when travel arrangements have been finalized.

  • An individual denied admission to Huntingdon College as a degree-seeking student is not eligible to register as a Special student.
  • Special students may not take classes numbered 300 or above without the approval of the provost.
  • After completing four courses as a Special student, the student must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher to continue as a Special student.
  • Exemptions from any of the above restrictions may be granted only by the provost.
  • Payment arrangements for Special students must be made in accordance with the policies set forth for regular students as defined in the Huntingdon College Catalog.
  • Special students will be charged at the same rate per credit hour as regular students; are not eligible to live in residence halls or to participate in intercollegiate athletics or fraternity or sorority membership; and are not eligible for any Huntingdon College scholarships or Title IV federal funds.
  • If a Special student subsequently meets regular eligibility admission requirements and chooses to become a degree-seeking student, transcripts from previous colleges and universities attended will be evaluated.
  • Any credits earned while designated a Special student are applicable toward the degree sought at Huntingdon College.
  • Special students must adhere to the same institutional academic policies (except as noted above) as regular students.

Transient status is available to students regularly enrolled and in good standing at another college or university who desire to attend Huntingdon College. To be considered for transient admission, submit a letter of good standing or a transient form indicating good standing and pre-approved courses from your home institution. This information should be presented to the Huntingdon College Registrar’s Office at the time of enrollment.
