Admissions Policy

Pennsylvania Highlands Community College grants admission to individuals who have successfully earned a high school diploma, General Educational Development (GED) equivalency, or the HiSet Exam and who the College considers eligible to benefit academically from admission. Individuals age 18 or older who have not earned a high school diploma or GED equivalency may be admitted to the College if they are able to demonstrate their ability to benefit from a college experience. Certain academic majors may have additional admissions requirements that must be fulfilled for an individual to matriculate into a specific degree, diploma, or certificate program.

Prospective students who have not earned a high school diploma, GED equivalency, or HiSet Exam may be eligible to apply for a Commonwealth Secondary School Diploma through the Pennsylvania Department of Education following the completion of 30 credits.
