Admission to Central Christian University requires an official transcript of high school graduation.  G.E.D. students may be admitted upon presentation of a test score of 50 or higher.  Applicants possessing a high school transcript from a non-accredited institution will be considered on an individual basis by the admissions committee.  Applicants without a fully completed high school diploma will be considered on an individual basis if they are over the age of 25.  The following criteria must be met for acceptance to a regular degree seeking status:

1.  High intellectual achievement and scholarship as evidenced by grades, entrance exams, and academic recommendations.  Specifically included:

a)    A cumulative GPA of 2.75 based on a 4.00 scale.  A minimum 3.00 grade point average in the major is desired.

b)    Each applicant must have a personal interview with an Educational Consultant to review his or her application and transcripts and determine the appropriate degree program the student should follow.  These interviews should be in person, but telephone interviews are acceptable.

2.  Students are required to work individually with an advisor on an on-going basis throughout each semester.  This advisor helps the students set academic goals, develop a course schedule, adapt to college life, and identify and solve potential problems before they become crises. The advisor also assists the student when additional direction is needed.

In keeping with our philosophy, the admissions department gives attention to  

(a)   scholarly attainment as shown by the school record and examination,

(b)   desire for continuing formal education,

(c)   character and personality traits,

(d)   emotional health,

(e)   leadership qualities.


Students transferring from recognized theological seminaries will be given advanced standing to the extent that their credits approximate the curriculum of Central Christian University.  Since Central Christian University deems its courses essential for graduation, it will seldom be possible to extend credit for subjects bearing minor similarity to those listed in the prescribed curriculum. 

No courses used as credit toward undergraduate degrees will be accepted as credit toward a graduate degree. Courses graded less than "C" will not be transferred.  A copy of previous transcripts are to be sent to the Central Christian University Administrative Office for evaluation.   

Upon completion of each evaluation, a Central Christian University counselor will notify the student regarding the number of credits accepted for transfer.  This information will be added to the student's transcript at the time of the evaluation. 

Students must complete a minimum of 12 undergraduate hours or 16 graduate hours to be eligible for any degree.

Applicants will work individually with an advisor to assist in setting educational goals and develop a course of study for the semester.  Students may transfer up to 25% of the required courses toward any graduate degree.
