Campion College recognizes the inherent dignity of all members of the human family and seeks racial, cultural, and ethnic diversity. Campion College prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability, or status as a veteran or disabled veteran. The College maintains its Catholic character, but is open to persons of all religious faiths who respect the goals of Campion College, as adopted by the Board of Trustees.

Applicants for admission must furnish evidence of good character, excellent academic preparation, and an ability to succeed in the rigorous demands of the curriculum. Since the College is not a state-supported institution, enrollment is not limited to residents of California, nor is any distinction made on that basis in entrance requirements or tuition and fees. Campion College has a rolling admission policy.

Non Discrimination Policy
Campion College admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color or national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Appointments may be made for any mutually convenient time and place.

An Overview of the Admissions Process for Applicants:

Step 1: Complete the Application process. A detailed description of the process is described in the following pages.

Step 2: Once the Admissions Office receives all documents, the application is evaluated by the Admissions Committee for acceptance. If any additional documents are needed, an Admissions Counselor will contact the applicant.

Step 3: A decision letter is mailed by the Admissions Office.

Step 4: All Accepted applicants will receive a New Student Enrollment Kit.

Step 5: All students interested in applying for our tuition grants or other financial aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after January 1.

Step 6: Confirm your decision to enroll by sending in your non-refundable deposit of $150, along with all Enrollment Kit forms.

Campion College’s student body consists of an exceptional community of scholars. From our 25 years of experience with the St. Ignatius Institute, we know that the academic enthusiasm and moral character of our students will be among the best in the country. It is the desire of the Admissions Office to assist students in their efforts to find the college that will enable them to develop into all that God has designed for them. At Campion College, students will be challenged intellectually, spiritually, and socially. Therefore, a careful Admissions process is followed for each student, and acceptance to the college is determined by the use of several different indicators.

Subject Requirements from High School:
A strong high school program of academic subjects is an important preparation for college study. The College recommends the following curriculum in preparation for its academic program:
  • 4 years of English (Literature, Grammar, Composition)
  • 4 years of Social Studies (including History)
  • 3 to 4 years of Mathematics (Calculus is not required, but recommended for students pursuing a degree in Mathematics)
  • 3 years of Science (including Biology, Chemistry and Physics)
  • 2 years of Foreign Language (Ancient or Modern)
  • 2 years of Art (including Performing and Visual Art)
  • 4 years of electives
Minimum Standards for Acceptance:
The Admissions Committee is looking for a combination of the following minimum standards: · High school grade point average of 3.5 or above · SAT or ACT score of or above: SAT= 1200, or ACT = 26 · A well constructed essay, showing consideration for content as well as grammar and style · Two letters of recommendation from individuals, not related to the applicant, that provide thoughtful reflection on the applicant’s ability to succeed at Campion College. The letters should come from an academic source (teacher, guidance counselor, or tutor) as well as a character reference (pastor, employer) · A personal interview with a member of the faculty or administration of Campion College or a designated local representative.

Admissions Procedures:

Campion College uses a rolling deadline for admission into the Fall semester. An admissions file is considered complete when the Admissions Office has received the following:
  • A completed Campion College Application, with all required essays attached
  • An official high school transcript
  • A photocopy of SAT or ACT test scores
  • An official college transcript, if the student has taken any college courses
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • A report from the person interviewing the applicant

Freshman students typically apply during their final year of high school studies. Therefore, an official but not final transcript will be used to determine the student’s eligibility for acceptance and scholarship. At the completion of the academic year, a final and official transcript must be sent from the high school to the College. The College reserves the right to revoke the acceptance of a student if academic performance has severely declined as evidenced by the final transcript. Application forms are available through the Office of Admissions and online. Students may submit applications after completing their junior year in high school. Early application is encouraged. Inquiries should be addressed to:

Admissions Office
Campion College
2515 McAllister Street
San Francisco, CA 94118

or prospective students may telephone (415) 387-2324.

Students from Home School Programs:
Campion College encourages students from all accredited home school programs to apply for admission. The College has also created procedures to assist students from independent programs of home schooling. A home schooled student should follow this procedure:

1. Complete the application for admission, and all required essays

2. Provide: A transcript from an accredited home school program showing completion of high school; OR Documentation showing which courses fulfill the College’s high school course requirements.

The Campion College Admissions Office has created a Home School Transcript Form, which can provide a format for creating transcripts.

This tool is especially helpful for families who have followed an independent program of home schooling. Please contact the Admissions Office if you would like to receive the transcript form.

3. Send a photocopy of ACT or SAT scores to the Admissions Office. Note: Home schooled students who did not enroll in an accredited home school program, but would like to benefit from Federal Financial Aid, may need to take a test to show completion of secondary school. The Department of Education has recently approved the use of either the ACT exam or the GED exam for the purpose of qualifying for financial aid.

Transfer Students:
Students who have taken college level courses are considered transfer students and should file an application as early as possible. Application requirements for transfer students are the same as for first-time college students (see above) with the following additions:

An official college transcript from each college attended

Admission is based on the strength of academic achievements in 24 or more semester hours of transferable college credit. For students with less than 24 transferable credit hours, high school records and other credentials will be weighed more significantly in the evaluation process.

Application Deadlines:
Freshman entrollment is limited to 30 students. Therefore it is imperative that students apply as soon as possible to ensure their place if accepted.

Health Insurance:
Health insurance coverage is required of all students attending Campion College. Students not covered under a parent plan must have their own coverage. This responsibility ultimately rests with the parent and the student.
