At Creighton, you’re more than an exam score. In determining whether Creighton’s right for you, we consider all of your qualifications for college admissions, from what you’ve done to who you are. Find out below what materials you need to submit to be considered for admission to Creighton.
Admissions Prerequisites and Requirements
To be considered for admission, you should submit the following to our Office of Admissions:
A completed Application for Undergraduate Admission
Your official high school transcript, including the scale on which you were graded, sent directly from your high school (please note: if your transcript is in a language other than English, you should also submit an official translation of the transcript)
One to three letters of recommendation, written by one of your teachers, coaches, counselors, or mentors, attesting to your academic and social preparedness to study at Creighton
Your ACT exam scores (sent to Creighton via our ACT school code, 2444) or SAT exam scores (sent via our SAT school code, 6121), writing portion not required; for students who do not have access to the ACT or SAT, Creighton also accepts TOEFL or IELTS scores.
- Candidates who do not meet these exam score requirements will be considered for conditional admission if they meet all other academic qualifications.
- Please contact us to confirm the current English language proficiency requirement.
Any external examination results or forthcoming results that mark the completion of secondary school and adequate qualification for university in your country of origin (e.g. Cambridge International Examinations, International Baccalaureate (IB) exams, West African Examination Council (WAEC) exams)
In addition to submitting these materials, we encourage, but do not require, that you supplement your application by scheduling a phone, Skype or in-person interview, and send us certificates of your major achievements.
Additional Application Considerations
Creighton is proud to award credit for sufficiently high AICE A-level grades as offered by Cambridge University. Please review the courses we accept and the corresponding grade benchmarks, available here as a PDF.
International O-levels and IGCSE may be recognized for matriculation purposes in some countries. Passes in 5 subjects with at least grade C are required for admission consideration.
To be issued an I-20 for the F-1 student visa, students must demonstrate that they have sufficient financial resources to support a year of study in the U.S. Please submit the Certification of Available Finances with your application and attach a bank statement or letter of support.
Creighton University values academic integrity and strongly discourages the use of third-party agents to prepare university applications. Any student found to employ or engage a third party to complete or alter any portion of the university application will be disqualified from admission consideration. In addition, admitted or enrolled Creighton students found to have violated this standard will be dismissed and the offer of admission rescinded.
