Hudson Taylor University follows an open admissions policy for those  who meet its educational requirements. Application decisions are made  without regard to the applicant’s race, color, gender, handicap or  disability, or national/ethnic origin, according to our  non-discrimination policy. Applicants are assessed according to their  academic background, moral character, and a religious autobiography. The  Office of Admissions carefully reviews an applicant’s records and  reference letter(s), and after such review, makes a recommendation to  allow or refuse admittance. The Office of Admissions may choose to  conduct an interview with the applicant. Once a decision is made, the  applicant will be notified of his or her status, usually within one  business day. Approved applications are valid for a year from the date  of approval. Hudson Taylor University reserves the right to refuse  admission to any applicants who do not meet our standards and criteria.

Statement of Non-Discrimination

Hudson Taylor University does not discriminate against anyone on the  basis of race, color, gender, age, disability, or national or ethnic  origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions  policies, scholarship programs, employment procedures, or any other  school-administered program. Hudson Taylor University is a  Christ-centered and Bible-based educational community, and as such, in  the furtherance of its stated Mission and Institutional Goals; and in  order to maintain adherence to its Tenets of Faith and Ethical  Standards, requires applicants to be personally committed in faith to  Jesus Christ.

Nonstandard Admissions

Hudson Taylor University does not admit ability-to-benefit students  or probationary applicants. All applicants must possess the required  educational background (high school diploma or equivalent, etc.). No  credit is given for prior learning experience or for credit earned from  non-degree programs. All transfer credit must be earned  post-secondary-level credits. See “Transfer Students and Transfer of  Credit,” below, for details. HTU does not accept applications for  concurrent enrollment (i.e. high school students enrolling in  undergraduate programs or undergraduate students enrolling in graduate  programs), nor does it accept probationary enrollment of any kind. All  applications for admission are subject to the requirements detailed in  this section of the Catalog.


Students transferring from a recognized college or university must follow the general application policies and procedures.

General Criteria for Transfer

Accreditation status and faculty qualifications of the institution,  as well as content correspondence and instructional level of courses are  considered.

Criteria for Transfer from a Nonaccredited or Otherwise Unrecognized Institution

  • Evaluation of catalog
  • Authorization or official exemption of the institution by the state where it is located
  • Evaluation of faculty credentials
  • Assessment of course content and level of instruction

Transfer Credits 

Students should not assume that credits will automatically or  equivocally transfer to or from any educational institution. Before  enrolling, potential Hudson Taylor University students should  familiarize themselves with the university’s policy on the transfer of  credits, including whether or not the university will accept any credits  earned at another educational institution. Course credits with a  minimum grade of “C” earned at other accredited colleges and  universities will generally be accepted at full value to the extent that  the courses are comparable to Hudson Taylor University’s stated  requirements. An official transcript from the institution attended  showing satisfactory course completion is required. Transfer hours are  not accepted into a non-degree program, or for courses that do not meet  program requirements. A maximum of 75% of credit hours toward the  completion of an undergraduate degree may be transferred; and a maximum  of 50% of the credit hours toward the completion of a graduate degree  may be transferred.
