International Student Enrollment, Transcripts, and Tuition

Admission for International Students

CNM is pleased to announce that we have been certified by the Student & Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) to accept and enroll international students. If you are thinking about studying in the United States and would like more information, please visit Global Education at CNM or email  to see what CNM has to offer.

CNM offers three admissions applications to meet the needs of your educational intent and status in the United States. Feel free to email or if you need assistance deciding which application is for you.

International New Students


If you will require an F-1 visa to study in the United States, please choose the International New Student Application when you apply.

International Transfer Students


If you currently have an F-1 or M-1 visa to study in the United States and are interested in transferring your visa to CNM full-time, please choose the International Transfer Student Application when you apply.

International Students who are Concurrently Enrolled at Other US institutions


If you currently have an F-1 or M-1 visa to study in the United States and are interested in taking only one or two courses at CNM, please choose the International Concurrent Student Application when you apply.

Dependents in the United States on an F-2 visa may also apply using the International Concurrent Student application.

International Student Transcripts

Students who have attended non-US institutions may be eligible to transfer credits to CNM. The transcript(s) must be evaluated by NACES. This will determine if the transcript is equivalent to US regionally accredited institution standards.  This has to be done prior to submitting your transcripts to the Records Office.  There is a fee for services sought through NACES, which you will be responsible for.

Tuition for International Students

Most non-US citizens are non-residents for tuition purposes.  Non-US 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.
