Entry Requirements

An application is not complete until we have received the below items:

  • Application for Admission and Scholarships

Prospective first-year and transfer students who are U.S. citizens may apply for admission using either the CSB/SJU GET INspired Application or The Common Application.

  • Writing Sample

Submit a writing sample on a topic of your choice or a previously written paper. It should be one to two pages in length, typed and double-spaced.

  • Official Transcript
  • Official ACT/SAT results
  • Official ACT/SAT results
  • Teacher Evaluation

The evaluation should be from a teacher from one of your core academic courses (English, math, science, or social science). Only one evaluation is required, but you may submit more than one.


Required Courses:
Two courses (8 credits) from each of four of the following areas:

  • ASTR 211, 212;
  • BIOL 121, 221, 222;
  • CHEM 123, 234;
  • CSCI 161, 162;
  • GEOL 211, 212; or 213, 214;
  • MATH 119 or 123 (not both), 120, 124;
  • PHYS 105, 106 or 191, 200.

Eight additional 4-credit courses, or the equivalent from biology, chemistry, computer science, geology, mathematics or physics; five of the eight courses must be upper division. NUTR 125, 330, 331 and ENVR 175, 275 may be selected to fulfill up to three of the eight courses.

The only 100-level science courses that may be used to fulfill a requirement for this concentration are listed above. It is not possible to major in both natural science and another science.

Special Requirements:
*For the "three-one" program in dentistry (see listing under "Pre-Professional Programs"), the requirements for a natural science major will be fulfilled by meeting the lower-division requirements in biology, chemistry, physics and one course in mathematics plus CHEM 235, 236; a minimum of two upper-division science electives; and credits from the first year of professional school (when transferred back to Saint Benedict's or Saint John's).
