All courses and majors in the College of Adult and Professional Studies are designed to meet the specific needs of working adults.

To apply for admission, prospective students must:

  1. Complete and sign the admissions application.
  2. Request official transcripts be sent from the high school and/or college(s) registrar’s office directly to Friends University Admissions Processing Department.
  3. Submit a non-refundable application fee.

A prospective student who has fewer than 24 attempted semester hours of college credit, excluding withdrawals, must:

Provide high school diploma from an accredited high school with a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA, or a GED with a composite score of 50 (if earned prior to 1/1/02) or an average score of 450 (if earned after 1/1/02).


College transcripts from a regionally accredited college with a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA.

A prospective student who has more than 24 attempted semester hours of college credit, excluding withdrawals, must:

  1. Have a “C” average (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) for all transfer work attempted
  2. Be in good standing at the last college or university attended

Note: Transfer Credit: Credit is transferred with the grade earned in the course at the institution where the course was taken. All grades are calculated for a transfer GPA, including courses that might have been deleted from consideration by an “academic fresh start” at the transferring institution. Students should be aware that credits may be transcripted but not counted toward major or graduation requirements. “D” grades in major courses and certain other courses are not accepted toward graduation. No remedial coursework will be accepted as either earned hours or hours toward graduation. Friends University will not transcript credit for any coursework that did not receive credit at the transferring institution.
