Frequently Asked Questions

Which of my credits will transfer?

Huntington University accepts two types of transfer credits:

  1. Direct Equivalency: The course is equivalent to a specific course at HU and fulfills specific coursework requirements for admission and/or your plan of study
  2. Undistributed Credit: The course does not match a specific course for the degree of interest but will be brought in as a general credit that can be used to satisfy elective requirements in your program.
How do I request a Transfer Credits Evaluation?

Contact your transfer admissions counselor to request an official transcript evaluation. The registrar's office will evaluate your transcript(s) to determine which of the classes you’ve taken can qualify for credit at HU and send the results via email. If the class was taught at a regionally accredited institution and you earned a C- or better, it is eligible for consideration. Please note: 

  • Some degree programs may have additional requirements.
  • HU considers nationally accredited institutions on a case-by-case basis.

Do transfer students receive scholarships?​

Our Transfer Academic Award maximum is $11,000 per year, but transfer students can be awarded according to our Freshman Academic Awards program if their high school transcript qualifies them. Transfer students who wish to be reviewed for a Freshman Academic Award must send an official high school transcript to Huntington University. HU will award transfer students the highest academic scholarship for which they qualify based upon transfer and high school GPA. 

Can I live off campus?​

All full-time, single students must live on campus unless they are 22 years of age (prior to the first day of classes in the fall or spring), married, or living at home with their parents at the family’s primary residence, provided that residence is within 70 miles from campus.  Students who are 24 years of age or older will not be permitted to live on campus, although exceptions may be made for international students.​
