COVID-19 Admissions Update

At CSP, we recognize that COVID-19 has impacted many facets of your educational experience. To hopefully ease the admissions process, we have made the following changes:

  • Transcripts: Unofficial high school or college transcripts will now be accepted for application review. Transcripts can be emailed to CSP at admissions@csp.edu.
  • ACT/SAT Scores: As a test-optional institution, CSP is able to waive the requirement for standardized testing. Seniors can still submit scores, but they are no longer required for admission.
  • Deadlines: We have extended our priority undergraduate admissions and enrollment deposit deadlines from May 1 to June 1.
  • Virtual Visits: Although our campus is closed, you can easily connect with us virtually.
  • Transfer Credit Acceptance: Transcripts reflecting courses completed in the Spring 2020 term with a P or S grade will be awarded course equivalency credit transfer as if the student has earned the minimum standard grade required for transfer under our current policy. Additionally, we will allow any P or S earned during the Spring 2020 term to meet degree requirements. View the full policy on our COVID-19 site. *Prerequisite courses for Nursing, Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Doctor in Physical Therapy may have exclusions to accepting pass/fail based on programmatic requirements.

We wish for the continued health and safety of you and your loved ones, and look forward to welcoming you as a CSP student!
