Deferring Admission - Graduate Programs

A student who has been accepted to Seton Hill University may defer her/his enrollment for a period of one semester or one year with the consent of the program director for the student’s program of study. Deferred admission is contingent upon availability of seats in the program. If the student does not enroll after the period agreed upon (a maximum period of one year), a new application for admission will be required.

Appeals on Denial of Admission - Graduate Programs

If an applicant questions a denial for admission, the Director of Graduate and Adult Studies will review the person’s application file with the appropriate Program Director. The Director of Graduate and Adult Studies will then contact the applicant to report the decision. If the applicant remains dissatisfied with the decision, she/he has the option to appeal the decision to the Provost. The appeal is then presented to a Graduate Admissions Review Committee, and a final decision is rendered. No more than one appeal will be presented for a student.

Application Materials

All applications, transcripts, letters of recommendation, and other documents submitted for review of the student’s application and admission become the property of Seton Hill University upon receipt and will not be returned to the applicant.

Final High School Transcripts

Seton Hill University requires documentation showing that each student who matriculates (enters into a degree or certificate program) at the undergraduate level has completed and received a diploma from a secondary school. This must be in the form of an official final high school transcript, an actual diploma or “leaving certificate”, or some other official document. For graduate degree or certificate-seeking students, an official transcript from a postsecondary institution that provides evidence of at least two years of postsecondary work (60 or more semester credits) acceptable for full credit toward a baccalaureate degree is allowed.

In the case of a student who completed secondary education in a country other than the United States, all documents showing completion of tests, awards, etc. must be presented, and these will be reviewed by the Registrar’s Office in the absence of the final high school transcript.

Documents must be received no later than mid-semester of the student’s first term of attendance. The student will not be permitted to enroll for any subsequent semester of study without the required documentation.
