- HOUSING: A refundable* $140 housing deposit is required if you plan to live on campus. This deposit is not mandatory for acceptance, but must be turned in before registering for classes.

- TRANSCRIPTS: Take the transcript request form to your guidance counselor or registrar and have them send an official transcript to us.
- High school students need to have an official transcript for acceptance for admission. You will also need to make arrangements for a final transcript to be sent after your graduation.
- Transfer students who are transferring 14 or more hours to Harding must send an official transcript of all college work completed. If you are transferring, and have 14 hours or more, we will not need a copy of your high school transcript.
- Harding has also partnered with Transferology. Once you have created your free account with them, Transferology will allow you to not only view course equivalencies from other colleges and universities, but it also allows you to chat with advisors about courses you have taken or wish to take elsewhere, visit with your recruiter, view information specific to Harding and much more.
- ACT OR SAT SCORES:
We require applicants to send official score reports directly from ACT or SAT. We do not accept copies of online scores or scores on transcripts. Log into your ACT or SAT account to send your scores. If you have questions about the status of your score, contact your admissions advisor. Transfer students who are transferring 14 or more hours are not required to send us a copy of test scores. Harding’s ACT code is 0124; our SAT code is 6267.More information about requesting official SAT scores.
