What opportunities or programs does Howard Payne University have in place to help first-year students acclimate to college life?
Howard Payne University
Our Office of Student Experience works hard to create lots of opportunities for incoming students to "find their people" within our small, welcoming on-campus environment. Student organizations like our sororities and fraternities also host "get-to-know-you" events. Our student ministry also hosts weekly FreshCo (Freshman Council) meetings that give incoming students a place to meet each other, upperclassmen, and to voice their ideas.

Is Howard Payne University test optional?
Howard Payne University
If your high school GPA and class rank meet our test-optional admission standards, yes, you can be admitted without the need to submit standardized test scores (ACT, SAT, CLT)! If your GPA and class rank do not meet the test-optional standards, you can take/retake SAT or ACT, or even try the online option for CLT test. HPU also uses a "SuperScore" system--we use the highest section score from each of your test attempts & add those best scores together to create your final composite score we use for admission. We work in your best interest!
