Academic Information / Requirements:

Request that your guidance counselor forward an official copy of your high school transcript to Juniata College. Request your transferring institution forward an official transcript along with the Guidance Recommendation/School Report.

A 2.50+ is preferred. If applicable, a GPA as computed by a two-year college, with or without an associate degree, will be accepted. The maximum number of credits accepted in transfer is 60, which is 50% of the credits required for graduation. Only credits with a grade of C or better are transferable in acceptable courses.

A transfer student with an associate degree may be able to receive a baccalaureate degree in two years. The degree path chosen and applicability of prior coursework will be significant determining factors in the duration of the bachelor’s degree.

It is preferred that a transfer student have the same high school classes required of entering freshmen. These may be satisfied by college courses and possibly accepted towards a baccalaureate degree.

Housing is guaranteed for eligible transfer students.

Proof of Finances 

All applicants must provide proof of financial support that will cover the estimated undergraduate expenses for a full year.

The amount that you must certify for the first year is for the total cost of attendance (minus the scholarship/need based aid if received), which includes college fees and books. The estimated health insurance, and estimated personal expenses are not included.  Please account for a 3-4% increase in the cost of attendance for each academic year.  This is normal for all colleges and universities.

You must also submit the International Student Financial Aid Application (ISFAA) if you are applying for need based aid.

Merit-based scholarships up to $30,000 are available for eligible transfer students.

In addition to Certification of Finances, please provide a bank statement dated within the last six (6) months. We can accept a letter of sponsorship in place of a bank statement, also on official letterhead.  The Certification of Finances is required for an application to be reviewed.

By United States law, we cannot issue the SEVIS Form I-20 until we receive authoritative documentation that you have adequate financial support for your education. This is to ensure that you will have adequate financial support through your entire education at Juniata College.  Providing false information can jeopardize your status as a non-immigrant as well as your status as a student at Juniata College.
