Admissions Matrix

Admission to the CCC Program is highly selective and based on a matrix assessment that takes the following elements into account.

1.  Applicant’s undergraduate and graduate (if applicable) record

  • Required minimum: an undergraduate degree from an accredited university
  • Recommended GPA: 3.0 minimum (on a 4.0 scale)

2.  Graduate Record Exam (GRE) (taken within past 5 years)

  • Recommended minimum: 160 on the Verbal Reasoning Exam and 148 on the Quantitative Reasoning Exam.

3.  International students only: Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)

  • All applicants who are not citizens of a country in which English is the primary language are required to submit a TOEFL score. International applicants who have a degree from a University in which courses were taught in English are still required to submit a TOEFL score.

4.  Academic and/or professional recommendations

5.  Submission of a writing sample is required. Please upload a short writing sample (10-30 pages) that illustrates your analytical, research, and communications skills.

6.  If applicable, employment and other relevant experiences, including any relevant courses that did not result in degree credit.
