My SAT/ACT test date has been canceled. How do I submit my scores?

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lock Haven University will waive the SAT/ACT score requirement for prospective students seeking consideration for the Fall 2020 semester. The Office of Admissions will continue to thoroughly review each applicant and, in some cases, require additional information such as a phone interview. Certain majors do not qualify for this waiver.
*Those majors include Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Health Science, Nursing, and Physics.

New applicants are encouraged to submit test scores if they are available. Students who do not submit SAT/ACT scores will have limited scholarship opportunities.

How will Pass/Fail grading affect my offer of admission?

If a school changes the grading scale to Pass/No Pass or Credit/No Credit this will not impact a student’s admission to Lock Haven University.

The College Board announced changes to the AP testing format. Will this affect how LHU will award credit for AP exams?

No changes have been made in regards to AP credits. Lock Haven University will accept any Advanced Placement (AP) courses for credit with a score of 3 or better on the College Board Advanced Placement examination. In most cases, courses will transfer either as a general education requirement or as elective credit.

For credit to be evaluated and awarded, official copies of AP credits and scores must be sent directly from the College Board testing service. For more specific information on the awarding of credit, please contact the Registrar's Office at 570-484-2006

Are campus visits and information sessions being offered?

Due to health concerns surrounding COVID-19 and the safety of our visitors, students, faculty and staff, Lock Haven University has canceled all on-campus visits until further notice. However, we are now offering virtual sessions until we re-open our campus visits.

My family’s income has changed due to COVID-19. What options do I have to update my financial information?

If a student’s financial circumstances change after the FAFSA was filed and there was an extraordinary circumstance that resulted in a loss of income, a reduction of income review might be warranted. On occasion a special circumstance may arise that make the FAFSA data an inaccurate picture of a family's ability to pay. Please reach out to our Financial Aid office at 570-484-2424 or to speak with a Financial Counselor.

When will I receive my Fall schedule?

All first-year student schedules will be created over the summer by the Registrar’s Office. When designing a schedule, the Registrar will consider courses required for your major as well as course availability. You will be able to drop/add to suit your needs during the first week of classes.

Will summer orientation sessions be offered?

Yes, first-year student orientation sessions will now be offered in an online format. Students will be notified once the summer calendar is created.
