Admissions Process


Academic Preparation

For admission as a new freshman to Saint Constantine College, students must have graduated, with a standard diploma, from an accredited or recognized high school, homeschool, or secondary institution. Successful completion of the GED or HiSET test may be accepted in place of a diploma. Required high school coursework includes, but it not limited to:

  • Four credits of English

  • Two credits of Algebra (Algebra I and II)

  • One credit of Geometry

  • Two credits of Foreign Language

  • Two credits of Natural Science

  • Four credits of History, Social Sciences, Logic, etc.

  • Two credits of Fine Arts

  • Additional credits in other electives or disciplines 

Saint Constantine College recommends taking the most challenging courses available to a student, including AP, IB, or honors courses. Official high school transcripts including a minimum of six semesters of completed coursework will be required for admission. 

Students with foreign high school diplomas (or equivalent) are welcome to apply for admission. In addition to meeting all the undergraduate admissions requirement, students must provide an official transcript evaluation and translation document from an approved foreign credit transcript evaluation service or clearinghouse. 

Applicants are expected to have achieved a GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale to demonstrate proficiency in their high school coursework. Students who apply with a high school GPA below 3.0 may be reviewed by the Admissions Committee and/or asked to provide additional materials to supplement their application, such as reference letters or writing samples. The Admissions Committee may choose to grant acceptance, grant conditional acceptance, or deny admission.

Conditional acceptance means that the Admissions Committee will write a recommendation for the student with the intent to help them be successful at Saint Constantine College. This recommendation may include, but is not limited to:

  • A limitation of courses/hours during the student’s first semester

  • A schedule of advising meetings with the student’s Semester Mentor, the Provost, or the Registrar

  • Tutoring or additional instruction outside of typical coursework

Conditional acceptance does not affect a student’s academic standing.

  • Online application

  • Personal Essay

  • Writing Sample

Saint Constantine welcomes students who have been homeschooled, in part or in full, during their high school education. Homeschool transcripts are accepted and must include name and location of the homeschool, student’s identifying information, coursework and date completed, grades earned, GPA calculations, and when the diploma was received. Homeschool transcripts should be both signed and sent by the parent, guardian, or homeschool teacher of the applicant.

Applying for Admission as a Transfer Student

Due to the nature of Saint Constantine College’s Great Texts model of education, transfer students will be evaluated for acceptance on a case-by-case basis. In many instances, transfer coursework, if it is accepted, will not shorten the duration of a student’s degree plan. 

Students seeking admission to Saint Constantine College who have completed college-level coursework at another institution must submit a complete application packet, including:

  • Online application

  • Personal Essay

  • Writing Sample

  • Clergy Reference Letter

  • Official high school transcripts

  • Official transcripts from all previously-attended higher education institutions 

  • OPTIONAL: Tests scores (ACT, CLT, SAT)


Transfer students may be accepted to Saint Constantine College before their prior coursework has been evaluated for transfer eligibility. It is the responsibility of the student to submit any necessary further documentation and understand what will be required to graduate. 


Evaluation of Prior Coursework

All transfer coursework will be evaluated by the following criteria:

  • The age of the coursework (maximum age limit is 10 years)

  • The comparability of the coursework to Saint Constantine courses, including content, level, and nature

  • The applicability of the coursework to Saint Constantine’s degree programs 

Saint Constantine College will only accept grades of C or higher in transfer coursework.
