Ways to Apply
The Admission Committee places the most emphasis on a student’s high school transcript. Activities, standardized tests, community involvement and all the things that make up the student’s life are important in the review process.
Juniata seeks a broad student population base including a wide geographic and cultural representation from a variety of social and economic backgrounds. The ultimate question throughout the application review process is always, "Will this student be successful at Juniata?" We support students in looking for the college that ‘fits’ them best. Hopefully, it is Juniata, but it may not be.
