Creighton University Admissions

How to Apply

The application process for Creighton University is fairly simple and straightforward. The university also provides prospective students with admission councillors who will help you every step of the way.

It is imperative to create a student account where you can keep track of your application status as well as any financial transactions that have taken place.

There are two routes which can be taken to apply to colleges under the university:

  • The Creighton Application: It is a streamlined application for students who wish to apply to just one school.

  • The Common Application: It is for students who wish to apply to a number of schools.

Since both applications require you to sign up on the university’s portal, all your processes are done online itself. You may either create a new Creighton University account or log in to an existing one and follow any instructions provided to you.

Instead, a holistic and comprehensive view is taken in regards to the student’s application. A detailed assessment of extracurricular activities, academic excellence and community service is undertaken. However, an average estimated GPA of 3.75 can prove beneficial.

Many universities incentivize students in the US by helping them gain university credit by taking certain courses which are available for them in high school. CLEP (Credit for Life Experiences), Dual Enrollment (also known as Dual Credit), and AP Credit are the names of some of the famous courses that are programmed for the students in the US universities. Policy regarding these credits is, however, not the same in all the colleges as every university has its own policy. These courses help the students to get a higher GPA, increase their chances of completing a degree, and also help in the completion of a degree in a shorter time. To avail these above-mentioned credits, students have to visit collegeboard.org and request to submit the scores to any university of their choice.
