“The House system enabled me to not just make friends but create a natural support system. My fellow brothers in my House pick me up when I feel down, and allow me to be a leader when I am called upon to do so. If you are willing to trust the process, you will find yourself among people who have your back for your college career and beyond.”House System

“College is a time to answer and explore the biggest questions, and New York puts into play so many questions about morals and ethics. The Christian professors at King’s provided a perfect opportunity to encounter the real questions of our time and reason through them with wisdom.”Faculty

Apply As a Transfer
If you have any questions before you apply, you can connect with an admissions counselor who specializes in working with your specific needs and questions. Make sure to list yourself as a transfer student when you apply. If you are currently in high school and have dual-enrollment credits, please apply as a freshman.
You will need to submit your high school transcript (or GED or high school equivalent) and transcripts from all colleges you have attended. You or a school counselor may send unofficial or official transcripts by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by fax (877-349-0231) or by snail mail:

Submit Writing Sample
Submit an essay of your choice that provides a good representation of your academic writing ability. This writing sample can be an essay you have already written for a class. The writing sample should be approximately 1,000 to 2,000 words, an academic-style paper, written for class, and include citations. Please avoid submitting blog posts, journal entries, stream-of-consciousness, and creative writing pieces. Show us your best work!
Please note: students with below 24 completed credits have the option to submit either your ACT/SAT scores OR a writing sample.
For 2023, Test Scores Are Optional
For transfer students with below 24 completed credits, SAT or ACT scores are optional for spring and fall 2023 enrollment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You may submit a writing sample (see “Submit Writing Sample” section) OR test scores for consideration.
If you wish to submit scores, complete an online request for ACT scores (use school code 2784) or SAT scores (use school code 2871). High schools sometimes include ACT or SAT scores on your transcript.
If you have 24 or more college credits, we will not review SAT and ACT scores. Kindly submit a writing sample instead.
In Admissions, we’re looking for students who are prepared to meet the academic demands of the King’s classroom. We require a minimum 3.0 high school GPA and a minimum 2.5 college GPA. If submitting test scores, we look for ACT sections of 24 or higher, and for the SAT an Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) section score of 610 and Math score of 570.
We know the application is more than numbers on a transcript. Students who are slightly below our minimum requirements but who show promise in their application will be invited to participate in an entrance interview and will be reviewed by our Enrollment Management Committee.
We recommend submitting your application as soon as possible so that we can connect you with the Admissions team and answer all your questions. We review applications on a rolling basis, so you will receive an admissions decision between two and four weeks of completing your application (including test scores and transcripts).
