Creighton University has an acceptance rate of 71 percent, but don't be fooled by this relatively high number. Students will generally need above average grades and standardized test scores to be admitted. As part of the application process, interested students will need to submit an application form (which can be found on the school's website), high school transcripts, ACT or SAT scores, a guidance counselor's evaluation, and a written personal statement.

Be sure to check out Creighton's website for more information, and to contact the admission office with any questions you might have!
