Undocumented 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 555555555. Applications submitted without a valid SSN require additional processing time. Admissions will delete this number when your application is processed.
Tuition for Undocumented 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.
