A Crowley's Ridge College Applicant is Rarely Typical

We believe in making the application process seamless and in giving careful, individual attention to every applicant. Our goal is to identify future Crowley’s Ridge College students who will strive for maximizing their potential in scholarship and service while cultivating a strong spiritual life with those around them during their College years and beyond. But what does that mean? Read more about how we evaluate your potential in those areas.

How We Evaluate Applicants

Our admissions process enables us to give deliberate and meticulous consideration of each applicant as a whole person. It is labor intensive, but permits extraordinary flexibility and the possibility of changing decisions virtually until the day the Admissions Committee mails them. This is especially important since we are always receiving new information about applicants.

Of course, no process is perfect. Inevitably, some students who are not admitted will see great success, and even with a 97 to 98 percent graduation rate, some admitted students might have been better served at another institution. We do everything possible to make the best admissions decision for each student.
