At CSE, there is no typical applicant. Admission counselors work hard to evaluate each applicant in a holistic manner, assessing character, service, special talents, creativity, independence, and life experience alongside traditional measures of academic success – like grades, rigor of curriculum, test scores and recommendations.
While there's no perfect formula that will guarantee acceptance, there are a few minimum requirements that guarantee each student we accept will come to campus prepared to succeed.
