H.S. Guidance Counselors - Admissions Policy

The goal of CCSJ’s admissions office is to admit any student who shows the potential for achieving academic success at the college level.  To that end, CCSJ employs a liberal admissions policy.   The student is not required to submit an admissions essay, counselor recommendation, nor SAT/ACT scores (though this is encouraged.)  If the student does not submit ACT/SAT scores, the student will normally be required to take the COMPASS assessment and essay before an admissions decision is made.  If the applicant does not have at least a cumulative high school GPA of 2.0/4.0, then the student will be referred to possible admission in the CCSJ PACE Program.

Subject preparation - High school students who intend to enroll at Calumet College of St Joseph should take a college preparatory curriculum. It is recommended but not required that entering freshmen should have at least 15 units of high school work from the areas and courses specified below.
