READ THE CHRONICLER
Admission will be determined by a variety of indicators including, but not limited to, high school grades, College Board Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Test (ACT) scores, essays, and letters of recommendation. (See Application Procedure below for further information.) The normal scores that the Admissions Committee is looking for in order to accept a student are: SAT - 1650 (all three sections combined) or higher and ACT 24 or higher. The Admissions Committee has these numbers as standards but treats each applicant individually and does take many other factors into consideration before making a final determination, so please apply!
Students interested in applying for the fall semester of an academic year have two Application Deadline Dates from which to choose: Early Action Deadline of December 1 or the Regular Admissions Deadline of March 1.
Applications received after March 1 will be considered as space permits and the applicants may be placed on a waiting list. Christendom is currently still accepting applications for the fall 2014 semester. There is no waiting list, as of yet, so please apply soon!
Those whose application packages are complete and in the Admissions Office on or before December 1 (Early Action Deadline), will receive notification of their acceptance or rejection by December 15th.
Those whose application packages are complete and in the Admissions Office on or before March 1 (Regular Admissions Deadline), will receive notification of their acceptance or rejection by April 1.
Students who apply at any date throughout the year, and whose applications meet the Admissions Committee's standards, may be notified as early as two weeks after submission of a complete application package. This is not the norm, but an exception to the above-mentioned application deadlines, dates, and processes.
The following online application allows you to complete the application form and write the three essays. However, before your application can be deemed complete, you must:
- Have a teacher who has instructed you submit an academic letter of recommendation. Ask your parish priest (alternatively, an employer or counselor) to submit a personal letter of recommendation. You may request the recommendation forms from the Admissions Office or download them. Before downloading, be sure that Adobe Acrobat® Reader is installed on your computer. The software is available free from Adobe.
- Send an official copy of your high school transcript (and college, if applicable) to the Director of Admissions. If you are applying after January, please ensure that your transcripts include the prior fall semester's grades.
- Request that SAT or ACT scores be sent to the Director of Admissions. If forms are not available at your high school, you can request that your scores be sent to us by visiting www.collegeboard.com for the SAT or www.act.org for the ACT. The examination code numbers for Christendom College are 5691 for the SAT and 4339 for the ACT. Even if your SAT or ACT scores are on your high school transcript, Christendom would still like the official scores sent.
