JCU does not have an application fee. As a first-year applicant, you'll need to submit the following items as part of your application: Common Application with essay, high school transcript with Common Application School Report, ACT and/or SAT scores (if you choose to have them reviewed), and at least one letter of recommendation.
If you are currently studying at another college or university and looking to make a change, you are considered a transfer applicant. As a transfer applicant, you'll need to submit the following items as part of your application: transfer application available at jcu.edu/transferapp, official transcripts from each university you have attended, your official high school transcript (if you have earned less than 25 college credits), and a transfer reference form to be completed by an official from your most recent college or university.
