Harcum College operates under a rolling admissions policy, which means that the Admissions Committee reviews each application file as soon as it is complete. Applicants will be notified within 10 working days of a decision, and of any conditions necessary for entry. Prospective students are advised to apply as early as possible to ensure admission to the program of choice.
Applications are processed without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, handicap or disability, veteran status, or marital or parental status.
Minimum Standards for Admission
Students who have been out of high school for more than three years and have not taken the SAT may be asked to take Harcum's Accuplacer before an admissions decision is made. Accuplacer is a placement measure that most Harcum students complete at some point, sometimes before admission to the College. It covers Math, Reading, and English, and helps the College make decisions regarding the proper class level for admitted students, and an applicants' ability to benefit from specific programs.
Many majors at Harcum specify additional standards and prerequisite classes needed for admission to the particular program, as well as the grades with which students should have completed those classes. Please refer to the descriptions of individual programs for more information.
