High School Graduation
Before you can enroll at Campbell University, it is required that you’ve graduated from high school or have completed an adult high school equivalency program - such as a GED. Also, to be eligible for full admission to the University, you must meet the following requirements:
High School Course Requirements
|Subject Area||Number of Credits|
|College-Prep Math (must have Algebra II and Geometry)||3|
|Social Sciences (one must be US History)||2|
|Natural Sciences (one must be a laboratory science)||2|
|Foreign Language (recommended but not required)||2|
The University recommends taking 2 credit hours of a foreign language in high school. Students with no background in a foreign language have a more difficult time passing college-level language courses.
Campbell University requires a cumulative high school GPA of 2.5 or higher.
Test Score Requirements
Note that Campbell University accepts either the SAT or ACT college entrance exams. You must take one of these tests to be considered for admission to the University.
|SAT Combined Math and Verbal Only||950|
Requirements for Transfer Students
In addition to the above requirements, you must submit official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions you have attended.
For transfer students, more consideration is given to your college coursework than your high school grades. For admissions purposes, the Admissions Office requires a cumulative GPA of 2.5 on all college work. The Admissions Office reserves the right to require transfer applicants who have not taken the SAT to do so. The determination will be made on a case-by-case basis and at the discretion of the Admissions Office.
Campbell University does not require a minimum number of hours in order to transfer. An applicant is considered to be a transfer student if they have completed any number of college credit hours after their official high school graduation date. Transfer students must be in good academic and social standing at the school from which they are transferring.
Transfer applicants must request official transcripts from all schools previously attended. Campbell University accepts transfer credit from accredited junior and community colleges, as well as four-year institutions. Campbell University will accept semester hours only from all transfer work. Campbell University accepts course content only for "D" grades. Consequently, a student will not earn hours toward graduation for "D" work completed at another college or university.
A transfer student will be considered on the basis of their overall college record. Work attempted and/or completed at the two-year institutions may receive up to 64 hours of credit. Transfer students from four-year institutions will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for credit. The final 32 hours of a degree must be taken at Campbell University.
The classification of a student depends upon the number of hours accepted in transfer. A student is classified: 1)as a senior, with 98 semester hours transferred 2) as a junior, with 64 semester hours transferred 3) as a sophomore, with 24 semester hours transferred
