International Student Admissions

All individuals must apply using the CNM online admissions process. When prompted to enter a SSN during the online admission process, non-citizens and other individuals unable to enter a social security number or tax ID number should enter 555-55-5555. Applications submitted without a valid SSN require additional processing time. Admissions will delete this number when your application is processed.

Admission for International Students

CNM does not issue F1 or M1 visas (I-20s) for international students to attend college in the United States.  All individuals who met CNM's general admission requirements can apply to attend CNM.

International Student Transcripts

International students must have their transcripts evaluated by NACES, which will determine if the transcript is equivalent to regionally accredited institution standards.  This has to be done prior to submitting transcripts to the Records Office.  There is a fee for these services which the student is responsible for.

Tuition for International Students

Most non-citizens are non-residents for tuition purposes.  Non-citizens who submit proof of having applied for or obtained Permanent Resident status, are on active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States, or who qualify for an SB582 waiver, may be eligible for resident tuition rates.
