Official Transcripts

Submit official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended. An undergraduate cumulative GPA of 3.0 is desired. To be eligible for full acceptance into the Graduate Counseling Program, your undergraduate work needs to include:

  •   6 credit hours of coursework in Biblical studies
  •   6 credit hours of coursework in Psychology including 3 hours in Abnormal Psychology

If you do not currently have these prerequisites met, you can still be accepted into the Graduate Counseling Program on a conditional basis. We can then assist you in completing these requirements.


Submit three recommendation forms, including at least one academic reference, to Huntington University Graduate School.  Graduate Counseling Program recommendation forms can be downloaded here.

Graduate Record Exam (GRE)

The Graduate Record Exam must be completed and sent to Huntington University (school code 1304, dept. 2005). The GRE scoring methodology was adjusted in the Fall of 2011. A combined score of 300, which is equivalent to 1,000 under the original scoring method, on the Verbal and Quantitative sections is preferred. Students scoring less than 300 still may be considered for acceptance.
You may be accepted on a conditional basis without a GRE score. A score must be submitted prior to completing your first year of graduate work.

Note Concerning Academic Prerequisites

The Admissions Committee may choose to waive some requirements for special circumstances. Students may also be accepted on a conditional basis and complete up to one year of graduate work without having all academic prerequisites met (GRE, coursework in Biblical studies, coursework in psychology), contingent upon Admissions Committee approval.
