Admissions Requirements

Sow the Seeds of Success: Apply to Creighton.

Creighton's Campus

Join a community of passionate leaders committed to making the world a better place. We’re looking for students with passion. Students who serve their communities selflessly and lead confidently. You have worked hard to get here – now show us who you are and what matters to you.

As a Jesuit institution, Creighton looks at each individual’s application holistically. We do not maintain minimum score requirements for GPA or standardized tests, rather we take a comprehensive view of your entire application including your academic success, course rigor, community service outside of the classroom, and standardized test performance. Creighton considers the best composite score from your ACT tests, but does superscore SAT tests. Your SAT superscore is the highest math and highest evidenced-based reading and writing scores even if they’re from separate test dates.

Recommended High School Curriculum

We encourage you to challenge yourself with a solid curriculum that expands your academic skills. You will also enhance your application by participating in Advanced Placement courses, the International Baccalaureate Program, and honors programs.
