Admissions Policy

Students are admitted to the University of the Holy Land after review of their application, undergraduate records, and personal references. Candidates are encouraged to submit their application material promptly. All sections of the application procedure must be completed before candidacy will be considered.

Applicants for degree programs must have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. The minimal acceptable grade point average is 3.0 or B (from institutions not using GPA).

While UHL is primarily a graduate institution, applications for the traditional semester or year abroad from junior or senior-level college undergraduates of demonstrated, superior ability, will be considered. Such students are expected to attend graduate level lectures, though the demands of papers and examinations may be modified as appropriate to their level.

UHL has a policy of non-discrimination. Students are accepted without consideration of sex, race, religion, age, national, or ethnic origin. Applicants with disabilities are encouraged to consider realistically the physical demands of living in Israel and the sparsity of access for the disabled.
