New Transfer Students

After you have been accepted to Creighton and your transcripts have been analyzed for transfer credit, you will be assigned to an advisor in your Dean's Office. You will then receive a registration time and PIN assignment in order to register along with current students.

New Freshmen in Fall 2021

In May, you will receive an invitation to Creighton's Virtual Summer Preview. During Preview, you will work with a faculty advisor to learn about classes and plan your schedule. You will also register for Fall courses.

If you are completing standardized college-level examinations (such as AP, IB, CLEP, etc.), Creighton will award academic credit for your exams based on the guidelines posted on our Admissions website. Be sure to consult your advisor about your exams during your Preview session. Based on your planned course of study and test scores, your advisor can help you determine how well prepared you are for the next level of courses in that field of study.
