CCU wants to make the benefits of a Christ-centered education available to students from different countries around the world. That’s why CCU encourages international students to apply for admission. In order to help you through this process, we have outlined admission procedures and requirements specific to international applicants. We look forward to getting to know you and serving you throughout the admission process!
As an international student, you must meet regular entrance requirements and follow standard application procedures. In addition, you will need to demonstrate the ability to understand college-level English. All non-native English speaking undergraduate students must achieve a minimum score of 550 or better on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
If you are admitted on a student visa you must be enrolled for at least twelve semester hours of credit. In order to work off campus, international students must meet with the International Student Coordinator at CCU to obtain permission from the United States Immigration authorities. International students may be eligible for institutional financial aid and awards, but are not eligible for federal financial aid.
The priority application deadline for financial aid and scholarship consideration is April 1 for the fall semester and November 1 for the spring semester. However, CCU will continue to accept applications after these deadlines until our enrollment capacity is reached.
CCU sets test scores and grade point averages as our minimum level of acceptance for traditional undergraduate students. Normally, the minimum requirements for admission are:
Students who do not meet these minimum requirements are encouraged to apply and the University will consider their application under a committee review process which may include a personal interview. Factors such as essay content, recommendation content, and extracurricular activity all contribute to an individual admission decision.
