Program Entry requirements can only change one time each year.
When a change is made:
- Information will be posted on this website one year before the change.
- Pre-Health Sciences students will be sent an email message.
- Applications will only be reviewed using the new requirements.
Please visit this website often to find updates. If you have questions or concerns, contact us.
All students are encouraged to apply for Coordinated Entry programs, and students will be evaluated and selected for these programs based on published criteria found in the program application.
The Coordinated Program Entry process follows the CNM Governing Board’s statement that CNM will not illegally discriminate in any of its policies or procedures, including admissions. (Governing Board Handbook, section 3.01).
If a student believes the application processes did not follow the above practices, he/she may file an appeal.
Students can only appeal for these reasons:
- If an error was made that negatively affected the student’s application score, such as failure to record documentation, or an error in the calculation of the application score.
- If published admission procedures, as stated on the website, were not followed in making the admissions decision.
- If the student was not given equal consideration, as described in the Governing Board statement above.
How to appeal:
- The student must submit a detailed, written letter explaining the circumstances of the appeal. The letter must be addressed to the Dean of the school of their intended program, and must include any supporting documentation (if applicable).
- Students may submit letters to the Dean by fax, mail, or in person (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Appeals must be received by the Schools Dean’s Office (not postmarked) within 5 business days of notification of non-acceptance by the Coordinated Program Entry Office. Non-acceptance letters are sent by CNM email. Students who do not appeal during this timeframe forfeit their right to an appeal.
- The Schools Dean’s Office will investigate and make a decision about whether the appeal is granted or denied. A decision will be made within 8 business days of the appeal date.
- The applicant will be notified of the decision by CNM email. All decisions are final. If an appeal is approved, admission to the program is not guaranteed. The School's Dean’s Office will determine the appropriate course of action to address the issue.
