Harrison Christian University (HCU) establishes admission criteria to ensure that students who enroll are capable of successfully completing and benefiting from the educational offerings. HCU admits students regardless of race, color, national origin, disability, sex or age to its programs. Applicants under the age of 17 are required to provide parental consent when entering into signed agreements with the University. Applicants must complete the HCU Student Application form and submit it to an Admissions Advisor or online at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*All documents become the property of HCU once submitted and will be handled with complete confidentiality.
Applicants for admission must possess a high school diploma or GED at the time of admission. To be considered for admission to an undergraduate degree or graduate degree program, applicants must submit the following:

Students who have not supplied all documents or other supporting data required for full admission by the start of an Accelerated Module Learning System course (starting every five weeks) or an Extended Module Learning System course (starting every ten weeks) are given “provisional admission.” A student may also be given provisional admission if the Dean of Academic Affairs believes certain provisions, requirements, or conditions should be met before full admission status is granted. Students must meet all conditions for full admission by the end of one academic year of provisional status unless otherwise stated by the Dean of Academic Affairs. Once all required materials have been received, a provisional acceptance will be rescinded.
TRANSCRIPT EVALUATIONS (ACADEMIC AUDITS)
HCU allows transfer credits from other colleges and universities, as well as recognized Bible Schools and Training Centers. Prior academic credits, training and relevant professional licenses and certifications may be accepted. Up to 75 percent of undergraduate courses and 50 percent of graduate courses can be transferred into your degree program. Unaccepted transfer credits include those grades of 69% or below.
The student is responsible to request his or her transcripts from prior learning institutions. Usually, this process is initiated by the student requesting a transcript from the prior learning institution’s website. Please note: Official transcripts are those transcripts which are received by HCU directly from the student’s prior learning institutions. Unofficial transcripts (those in the student’s possession) can be used for general review purposes or provisional admission. However, official admission within a degree program requires the receipt by HCU of transcripts directly from the student’s prior learning institutions.
During this process, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that HCU has received all supporting documentation. When the student has confirmed that all supporting documentation is in the possession of HCU, an Academic Audit will be initiated. The HCU Academic Audit may take several weeks to complete and the student will be notified when it has been completed.
LIFE and MINISTRY EXPERIENCE CREDITS
Prior Learning Experience (PLE) credits are available only to adult students and are awarded at the discretion of the Dean of Academic Affairs. Adult HCU students may earn up to 30 credit-hours for Prior Learning Experience.
Prior Learning Experience credits are awarded to the student who has professional experience in the ministry or in the marketplace. Awarded academic credits are based on experience, life-long achievements, and years of professional service and training.
Interested students must contact an Admissions Advisor to begin the process of applying for Prior Learning Experience credits. The PLE Worksheet/Application is available on the HCU website and the HCU Student Handbook. A $50.00 non-refundable fee is required for submission and assessment of Prior Learning Experience. A “per credit-hour awarded fee” will also be assessed based upon the number of credits-hours awarded to the student. An Admissions Advisor may request an interview as part of the assessment process.
