Transferring to The Haven


Join The Haven Family!

Who is a transfer student? Any student who has earned college credits after graduating from high school is considered to be a transfer student. 

We understand that transfer students already know a lot of about attending college. That’s why our dedicated transfer counselor is here to get you through the admissions process quickly and easily!


We know that it is important to students to learn how their credits will transfer to LHU.  Credits will be automatically evaluated during the application process and students will be provided with a unofficial credit evaluation. An official credit evaulation will be completed after the student is accepted and pays the enrollment deposit.

Students who prefer to see how their credits will transfer to LHU prior to applying for admission may do so using one of the three options below:

Option 1:  Pennsylvania Transfer and Articulation Center (PA TRAC)
Many Pennsylvania colleges and universities participate in the Pennsylvania Transfer and Articulation Center (PA TRAC). The Center allows students to see which specific courses and degree programs transfer seamlessly among each of the participating institutions.  Visit the link below to create your student account and obtain comprehensive transfer information about transferring between participating PA TRAC colleges and universities. 


Option 2:  Course Equivalency Table
View courses via the link to the course equivalency table below to see courses that have previously been approved for transfer to LHU from many colleges and universities across the country.


Option 3: Counselor Review
Submit your credit information via the form below.



Transfer scholarships are available for academically qualified students who have at least 12 transferable credits from a regionally accredited institution.
