Central recognizes that many factors affect grades and test scores, so the university utilizes the admissions review process. Freshmen applicants whose cumulative GPA is 2.99 or below and/or who are missing any of the high school CADR requirements, or transfer applicants whose GPA is below 2.5 from any previous college attended may be asked to submit an essay. Please do not send essay or letters of recommendation unless asked. The application will go through the admissions review process.
Other students who may be reviewed through the admissions review process include those who have not completed high school, earned a General Education Development (GED) certificate, as well as students 25 or older who have poor academic histories and have not attended school recently. Applicants may be required to complete supplemental application forms and/or submit additional information or essays.
