Juniata is a highly challenging and inclusive community that encourages students to reach beyond their potential. The Program of Emphasis, our distinctive academic approach to the traditional "major/minor system," encourages students to design their own plan of study or choose a designated plan, under the guidance of two academic advisers. Students gain hands-on experience by conducting relevant research, participating in national and international internships, performing community service locally and abroad, and studying abroad in one of our 46 different programs. Juniata outcomes speak for themselves with 93% admission to health professional schools and 100% admission to law school.

Application information

Find out about requirements, fees, and deadlines


Students may apply to Juniata using the Common Application any time after completion of their junior year in secondary school. The Office of Admission reviews student applications holistically. We consider a student’s high school transcript, Common Application essay, recommendation letters, standardized test scores if provided, interactions with the College, and student engagement both inside and outside the school community. There is no application fee, and students are encouraged to apply early in the fall of their senior year to be considered for available merit scholarships.


Applicants are considered transfer students if they have graduated from an approved secondary school program and completed the equivalent of one full-time semester of coursework at a regionally accredited community college, junior college, or four-year institution. The Office of Admission reviews student applications holistically. A transfer application consists of the application itself, high school transcripts, standardized test scores if provided, and college transcripts.
