Candidates who meet the following criteria are typically admitted to Central without restriction or condition:
- Have an unweighted cumulative grade point average of at least 2.700 on a 4.000 scale;
- Have successfully met the recommended college-preparatory curriculum outlined previously;
- Rank in the top half of their secondary school graduating classes; and
- Present no extenuating causes for special consideration.
A limited number of candidates may be admitted who do not meet the criteria for regular admission, but who demonstrate the potential and motivation to succeed at Central. Such candidates may be asked to provide the admission committee with additional information such as a seventh semester transcript, recommendation letters or personal statements. If admitted, students in this category should expect to be placed in at least one prescribed course and are strongly encouraged to utilize additional academic support services available at the college.
