CCHS University Application Requirements

An application to CCHS University requires several supporting documents and sometimes tests. We cannot
provide you with a decision until we receive all of your documents.
Application form
Two letters of recommendation
Personal statements
Official transcripts
Extracurricular activities and work
English language test
experience
SAT/ACT test scores (optional)
Detailed information about all of these items is provided below:

Application Form
We offer students two options to apply to the University, both of them online: the CCHS Application and the
Common Application. Choose only one. You may start either application without completing it in one sitting,
but make sure to submit your application within the official application deadlines. There is a processing fee for
the CCHS Application and the Common Application.

Personal statements
We want to learn more about you as a person and as a student. So, we ask that you include a personal statement
as part of your application.
Please write an essay of 250 500 words on a topic of your choice or on one of the options listed below, and
attach it to your application before submission. Please indicate your topic by checking the appropriate box.
This personal essay helps us become acquainted with you as a person and student, apart from courses, grades,
test scores, and other objective data. It will also demonstrate your ability to organize your thoughts and express
yourself. NOTE: Your essay should be the same for all colleges. Do not customize it in any way for individual
colleges. Colleges that want customized essay responses will ask for them on a supplement form.
___ Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their
application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
___ The lessons we take from failure can be fundamental to later success. Recount an incident or time when you
experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from experience?
___ Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the
same decision again?
___ Describe a problem youve solved or problem youd like to solve. It can be an intellectual challenge, a
research query, an ethical dilemma anything that is of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain
its significance to you and what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution.
___ Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to
adulthood within your culture, community, or family.
In addition to the essay above, in under 300 words, answer the following:
What attracts you the most about coming to CCHS University and how do you believe the experience of living
and studying here will change you? (For this part of the assignment, please answer this essay based on colleges
you have researched. Write it for that specific college, and then change the name to CCHS University).

Extracurricular activities & work experience


A summary of your extracurricular activities and employment history is a great way to share more information
about yourself. It also helps us better understand your interests, experiences, and how you spend your time.

Letters of Recommendation
We ask that you provide two letters of recommendation from teachers or professors with whom you have taken
classes and who can tell us more about you and your academic potential.

Official transcripts from the past three years of schooling


In your application, please include transcripts from your last three years of schooling. Transcripts include your
grades/marks and examination results (if applicable) through your most recently completed semester or grading
period. If you are still in school, the transcript will obviously not include your current courses in progress.
These transcripts must be in English, or be accompanied by a certified translation. When you apply, you can
submit unofficial transcripts. If youre admitted to CCHS University, you will need to submit official final
transcripts and examination results before you are allowed to enroll and before.
As a first-year student, examples of your last three years of schooling may be:
International Baccalaureate: your transcript of grades for the past three years and your expected IB examination
results.
United States: your high school transcript for grades 9-11 (and grade 12 if you have completed a term or
semester by the time you apply).
France: your bulletins from seconde, premire, et terminale (premier trimestre, for example).
Italy: your pagelle scolastiche from third, fourth, and fifth (first trimester, for example).
United Kingdom: your GCSE's or IGCE's. AS-levels, and A-levels or predicted A-level results you have
received to date or University Foundation Program results.

English language test (you do not need to include this in the mock application)
All courses at CCHS University are taught in English. Entering students must demonstrate sufficient English
fluency. If English is not your first language, we require that you submit one of the following test results dated
within the last two years.
To schedule a test in your area, please contact one of these language test organizations:
TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language)
TOEIC (Test of English of International Communications)
IELTS (International English Language Testing System)
The English language test requirement is waived if you are applying from Australia, Canada, Ireland, New
Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, or the United States where you have studied in an all-English
curriculum for at least two years.

SAT/ACT test scores (This should be your PSAT Scores for the mock application)
Applicants to CCHS University come from over one hundred different countries, cultures, and linguistic
backgrounds and do not fit a single mold. That is why SAT and ACT tests are optional for all of our applicants.
If you are a first-year applicant and you have already taken SAT or ACT examinations, you may voluntarily
submit your official scores to strengthen your application.
