International Student Checklist
Admission to CSB+SJU is open to all qualified students who demonstrate promise of college success in their application. The traditional indicators of ability – college preparatory curriculum, college entrance exams (ACT or SAT), grade point average and a writing sample – are important and carefully considered. In addition, CSB+SJU seek to enroll students who show promise of community contribution and productive participation in the classroom as evidenced by both their academic record and their participation in extra-curricular activities.
If you’re wondering how your academic achievements will compare to other CSB+SJU applicants, here is our academic profile for first-year students. These statistics are from the middle 50 percent of our new class:
22 - 28
1110 - 1310
3.34 - 3.9 (4.0 scale)
HS Class Rank
67 - 91 percentile
The committee also considers the strength of the student’s high school coursework. We recommend that a student, at a minimum, have four years of English, three years of math (through advanced algebra), two years of social science, and two years of laboratory science (beyond 9th grade). A large majority of our students will go beyond the minimum requirements.
