COVID-19: Accepted Student Resources

COVID-19 Updates

The Office of Admission is closely monitoring current events and how they might impact your college decision timeline. The following steps have been taken to play our part in helping to keep our prospective students, their families, and our campus community healthy and to assist you in your college decision.

College Decision Timeline

If you find that your college decision has been impacted by recent events, please contact your enrollment advisor and we will work out a custom decision timeline for you beyond the May 1 national reply-by deadline.

As always, contact your enrollment advisor with any questions you may have as we walk through this process together!

Visiting Campus

Due to travel restrictions and gathering restrictions in play for the foreseeable future, we are taking the following action:

  1. Accepted Student Weekend will now be a virtual event: April17/18 Accepted Student Virtual Event
  2. All individual visits through the rest of the semester will be available virtually. Schedule a virtual session with an enrollment advisor today.
  3. We will be releasing a series of video campus tours (a comprehensive tour and a series of mini-tours throughout campus)

In the meantime, please enjoy the following resources available immediately:

Financial Aid

Message from the Student Financial Services Office

In the midst of adjusting to this moment, you may be thinking about your future.  No matter where you are in your college journey we are here to help you with your plans and questions.

If your family’s financial situation has significantly been affected by this state of affairs, a Special Circumstance application may be warranted.  This form will enable the Student Financial Services Office to evaluate your current FAFSA and see if your current situation would impact your aid.

While many things are not “normal” during this time, we want to assure you that the Student Financial Services Office continues to be committed to helping you and your family navigate your college plans and financially prepare for the investment in your future.  Houghton is here to be a resource for you at all times but especially in this uncertain time. Please contact Student Financial Services at as questions arise.

While we would not have chosen this moment, we know that God remains in control.  Furthermore, we know that God also offers us—in the midst of even the most difficult circumstances—glimpses of the surprising goodness that God wants to bring forth for us in the days ahead. At Houghton you will be able to launch into your story with a riveting first chapter!


Marianne, Audrey, Amy, Beth, and Mindie
