Freshman Acceptance Criteria

We're delighted that you're considering enrollment at Central Christian College. To be defined as a freshman, you must be a high school graduate with no more than 23 hours of earned credit from a regionally accredited or otherwise recognized post-secondary institution.

If you meet the following requirements, you will be considered for full acceptance. Acceptance is granted on a combination of cumulative GPA and ACT/SAT test scores. This "product score" is calculated by multiplying your submitted ACT score by your cumulative GPA. Thus, an ACT score of 18 multiplied by a 2.5 GPA equals a product score of 45 ( 18 X 2.5 = 45 ). You must meet a minimum of a 45 product score to be granted full acceptance. If you do not meet all criteria, you may be granted provisional acceptance.

Early Acceptance

You can apply to Central Christian College as early as the end of your junior year in high school (with six completed semesters) by submitting your completed application, scholastic records, an SAT or ACT score. Senior-year test scores and grades should be submitted when available.
