Criteria for Admission

Randolph College has a place for first-time college students, returning students, and college graduates.

To qualify for enrollment as an adult student seeking the bachelor’s degree or teacher licensure, you must be at least 24 years old on or before the first day of classes of the semester of initial enrollment. If you do not meet this age requirement, but you are married or have children or other dependents whom you financially support, you may appeal for an exemption through the vice president for enrollment, who will take it to our admissions committee for review.

Men and women can apply for the bachelor’s degree, teacher licensure program, and certificate of major programs.

Randolph College encourages and gives full consideration to the applications of international students. If you are an international applicant, you will use the same application forms as candidates from the United States. If English is not your native language, you are required to submit a minimum score of 550 (paper-based) or 213 (computer-based) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). You may submit the Scholastic Assessment Test (SATI) in place of the TOEFL if you have achieved a SATI verbal score greater than 500. You may submit SATI, College Board Achievement Test (SATII), or American College Test (ACT) results to supplement the information in your application, although these are not required.

No standardized tests are required for admission to the program, except as noted above for international students.

Applications for admission are considered on an individual basis without regard to race, color, religion, ethnic origin, age, or disability. Applicants with disabilities may request accommodations in the admissions process. For information contact the director of the Academic Services Center at 434-947-8132.
