Admissions

Take your first step. Apply today!

Complete our first-year undergraduate application.  Once we’ve received your completed application and supporting materials (supporting materials include your transcripts and test scores), our staff will have an admission decision to you within 2-3 weeks.   

We accept transcripts several ways, as we know every school manages them differently.  We accept paper copies, as well as electronic transcripts via Parchment and/or Send.edu.  

Test scores can be included on your transcript, sent to us officially from ACT (our code is 2098) or SAT (our code is 6107), or to speed the process up, you can download a copy of your score report from your ACT account online, and attach it in an email to your admissions counselor.

If you prefer to submit a paper application, call us at (800) 249-6412 or email admissions@css.edu, and we will mail one to you.
