Each year Hampden-Sydney enrolls about 50 Freshman Honor Scholars.
Applying for Admission
It is easy to apply for admission, and you may do so at any time during the year. The deadline is July 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester. The sooner you complete your application, the sooner we will be able to notify you with a decision. If you have questions about which form you should file, the credentials needed to complete your file, or general questions concerning the College, please contact Jason M. Ferguson, Director of Admissions. He will work with you during the application process and throughout your transition to Hampden-Sydney College.
Transfer of Courses
Courses you have taken through another college or university which are similar to courses offered at Hampden-Sydney College will transfer with academic credit. (Please note that Hampden-Sydney does not accept on-line courses.) We will evaluate your transcripts for possible course credit on a case-by-case basis. The web pages of the Registrar's Office have helpful information on transfer credit.
