Applying to ccad collage2

With early action deadline for admissions, just around the corner (December 1st), here are a few things to remember when applying to CCAD:

1. Turn it in ASAP. CCAD looks at applications on a rolling deadline, which means that the sooner you turn it in, the sooner we will start reviewing it.

2. Proof your application. You can send a draft of your application to your admissions counselor via email; it would also be worthwhile to have teachers or family members review your application.

3. Personalized Letters of Recommendation. Carefully consider who to ask for Letters of Recommendation. You can ask teachers, employers, coaches, and other adults that aren’t related to you. They should know you well so that they have enough to say about you. Once you have the letters, you can email or mail them to CCAD. It is also beneficial to personalize the letter to the institution; they should focus on why you would be a great fit for CCAD, and what makes you a good candidate.

4. Transcripts. Things can get busy during the admission season, so give your school plenty of time to send us your transcripts. If your grades improve after the first semester, you can always send an additional unofficial transcript for more brownie points. For prime scholarship opportunities, CCAD likes to see grades that show an improvement from freshman to senior year and a GPA above 3.5.
