Jump Start Program
The Jump Start program is designed to introduce you to campus and to help you expand the skills you’ll need as a first-year college student.
At Bloomsburg University, everyone's climb is different. Yours starts here. Applying is your first step to success.
Let’s get you on your way by choosing the category that best fits you below.
*** BU has gone SAT/ACT test-optional. Future Huskies can now submit an admission application faster. For more details, visit the First-Year Admission page.
First-year students are typically high school seniors or have graduated recently and have never been to college.
Transfer students have graduated from high school and have enrolled at a university or other post-secondary institution, like a community college.
International applicants are students who are not U.S. citizens, nor hold a green card. International students may apply as a first-year, transfer, graduate, second degree, or as a visiting student.
Graduate applicants are students who have completed their bachelor's or plan to complete their bachelor's degree and pursue a master's or doctoral degree.
A readmit applicant is a student who was previously admitted and attended Bloomsburg University as a degree-seeking student. A readmission applicant is also defined as one who failed to enroll for a semester, withdrew, or was academically or socially dismissed from Bloomsburg University.
A second degree applicant must have completed the first degree at Bloomsburg University or another college or university which holds regional accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and School/Commission on Higher Education or another regional accreditation body.
If you plan on taking courses at BU, but not completing a degree you are considered a "Non-degree" student. This might apply to students who enrolled at another institution, high school students taking college credit, or a number of other unique situations.
