Undergrad Admissions Requirements

Sow the seeds of success: apply to Creighton.

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.

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 superscores from both ACT and SAT. Your superscore is  the total of your highest section scores, even if they are from different test dates. We have no preference between the two exams.

As a Catholic, Jesuit institution, Creighton University encourages students to be aware of important social justice issues facing society today and actively participate in the conversation. For students who take part in peaceful protests on issues that are important to them, there will be no admissions ramifications.

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.
