Admissions Requirements

Misericordia University has announced that it will begin test-optional admission review for the first-year class entering in Fall 2021 in all academic programs. Students who have taken the SAT or ACT are encouraged, but not required, to submit their scores.  Learn more in this news release.

The minimum criteria for admission into the History program as a freshman student are:

  1. Class rank in the top half of the high school graduating class and/or a cumulative 2.5 grade point average
  2. Minimum combined SAT score of 850 for Critical Reading and Math (combined) if taken prior to March 5, 2016, or 930 if taken after March 5, 2016. In lieu of the SAT, ACT results may be presented with a minimum required composite score of 18

Successful transfer applicants will typically hold a minimum collegiate grade point average of 2.0, having completed at least 15 college credits, and have a proven record of success in high school.

Please note the above requirements are general, and that each application is looked at thoroughly, taking into account individual grades, academic rigor, and other factors.

Candidates for general admission are reviewed on a rolling admission basis by the committee on admissions. The decision to admit a student is based on the student’s intended field of study and on an evaluation of the student’s qualifications.

Continuation as a history major requires that the student maintain a minimum of a 2.0 or “C” average in the major and a similar total grade point average. A student on academic probation for two consecutive semesters will be dismissed from the major.
