CAMPUS ALERT: Due to the weather, all evening classes at CSB and SJU are canceled. The LINK bus will run on its regular schedule until 5 p.m. and then every hour on the hour for the remainder of the evening, weather permitting. Pre-scheduled campus and community events and college/university sponsored events scheduled at off campus locations may continue at the discretion of the divisional VP.

Admission Criteria

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:

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.
