    Preferred Admission Process

    College of Undergraduate Studies - Fall 2017 Admission

    If you are a high school senior or transfer student and CCU is one of your top college choices for Fall 2017 admission, we encourage you to take advantage of our Preferred Admission process (a non-restrictive/non-binding process). Applicants with strong test scores, high school or college grades, and extracurricular accomplishments may find this an excellent option. The Preferred Admission process may allow you to resolve your college choice early in the fall semester to avoid the necessity of submitting multiple applications.

    If you complete your application by September 30, 2016, we'll enter you into a drawing to win one of five CCU prize packs of fall gear worth over $200! (actual items in the pack may vary).
