Creighton looks at each individual’s application holistically. We do not maintain minimum score requirements for GPA or standardized tests, rather we take a comprehensive view of your entire application including your academic success, course rigor, community service outside of the classroom, and standardized test performance. Creighton considers the best composite score from your ACT tests, but does superscore SAT tests. Your SAT superscore is the highest math and highest evidenced-based reading and writing scores even if they’re from separate test dates.

As a Catholic, Jesuit institution, Creighton University encourages students to be aware of important social justice issues facing society today and actively participate in the conversation.
