What is the application deadline?

The priority deadline for the fall semester is April 1, but CCU offers rolling enrollment which means applications are accepted until the enrollment capacity is reached. It is best to apply early so you can be sure to reserve your spot at CCU.

Does CCU take AP credit?

A high school graduate who has passed the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) with a score of 4 or 5 may receive university credit. Credit awarded will be treated as transfer credit and will count toward graduation.

What high school classes should I take to prepare to attend CCU?

Students should complete a college preparatory curriculum including four years of English, three years of math, two or three years of science, two or three years of social science, and two years of a foreign language.

What if I don't meet the requirements but I still really want to attend CCU? Are there any exceptions?

If you do not meet the admission requirements, your application file will be reviewed by a committee. You may qualify for conditional admittance. Students admitted conditionally will be limited to enrolling in 12 hours of credit during their first semester. Participation in collegiate athletics and other activities on campus is not limited. At the end of the student's first semester, academic progress will be reviewed. The CCU Academic Catalog as well as a student’s acceptance letter will provide more information about conditional acceptance.
