To be considered for admission, please submit the following items:

  • Official transcripts from high school and any post-secondary institutions. (Hand-delivered transcripts will not be accepted and are not considered official.)

Optional: A personal essay on any topic and recommendations letter(s)

Applicants are not required to submit SAT or ACT scores if the applicant has successfully completed more than 12 college level credits or has been out of high school for more than five years.

Transfer students who have taken courses outside of the United States must have their coursework evaluated by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services. Visit http://www.naces.org for more information.

Send all application materials to Undergraduate Admissions Office, Central Connecticut State University, 1615 Stanley St., New Britain, CT 06050.

Deadlines

Transfer students should apply by June 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester. We advise prospective students to submit an application at least three months prior to the semester in which they plan to enroll.

Admission Guidelines

Admission to CCSU is based mostly on academic achievement. Typically, CCSU admits students with a college grade point average of C or better after completing at least 12 or more college-level credits from regionally accredited institutions. Higher grade point averages may be required for certain academic programs. Please check with the school to which you are applying for additional information.

Transfer Credit Evaluation: CCSU typically awards credit to students who earn a C- or higher in 100-level or above coursework from regionally accredited institutions. All academic courses with a passing grade (D- or higher) will transfer from Eastern, Southern, or Western Connecticut state universities. Pass/Fail courses are not generally transferable except for recreation/physical education courses from any institution and all courses from Connecticut State University institutions. A transfer credit evaluation that shows how each college-level course transfers to CCSU will be mailed with your decision letter. Regardless of the number of credits transferred, a student must complete a minimum of 30 credits at CCSU to earn a bachelor's degree.
