Applicants will need to have a number of documents sent to the Office of Admissions. These include transcripts and evidence of English-language proficiency. All support documentation should be either the original documents or notarized copies. Since the language of instruction and administration is English, documents that are not in English must be accompanied by certified English translations.
If you are applying for an undergraduate degree program—either as a first-year applicant or as a transfer student—you will need to submit the following material:
- A completed undergraduate admissions Application Form
- High school Diploma from an accredited high school or foreign secondary school equivalent
- Official Diploma, transcripts, and certificates of all secondary and post-secondary schools attended. These documents may be sent directly from the issuing institution to Hellenic American College, or the applicant may receive them in a sealed envelope and submit them with the application. The sealed envelope(s) must not have been opened before receipt by Hellenic American College in order for the transcript to be valid.
- Evidence of proficiency in English. (The Undergraduate programs are offered exclusively in the English Language) . See the separate section on English-language Proficiency for a list of language certificates and test results that the University accepts as such evidence.
- The required personal essay that is included in the application form. The essay gives you an opportunity to discuss your goals and reasons for studying a program of Hellenic American University.
- Two Recommendation letters
- Two current passport-size photographs
- A copy of the applicant’s passport/National Identity Card
- A non-refundable application fee of €30/$36
SAT and ACT scores, although not required, will assist your acceptance decision.
Making sure that the material you submit is accurate and complete will help you avoid unnecessary delays in the admissions process. All applications and support materials are sent to Hellenic American University and a copy remains with the Hellenic American College. The Office of Admissions does not return application materials to the applicant once they have been submitted.
