How to get into Juniata College

Kat Swantak, Assistant Dean of Admission

Don’t you just love the fall? The foliage is colorful, the air is brisk, and the crippling stress of college application deadlines are all around us.

Well, maybe the third one isn’t so great given November is prime time for many Early Decision and Early Action deadlines for colleges across the country. Even Juniata’s Early Decision deadline is November 15. Don’t worry though, our first Early Action deadline is December 1, so you have plenty of time to apply afterward. 

With college application season in full swing, one question we consistently hear from prospective students in our admission office is:

“How do I get into Juniata?”


I’m a first generation student – Where do I belong?

First-gen. If you’re not familiar with the term, that’s okay, because I’m about to tell you why it’s so important. If you are familiar with the term, its likely had an impact in your life and how you view yourself, especially while you figure out which college to go to.
