Step 2: Verify English Proficiency

Take one of the following English exams and have the scores sent to CNM:

College Level Admission

  • TOEFL (you must achieve a minimum score of 61) School ID: B444
  • IELTS (you must achieve a minimum score of 6.0+)
  • CEFR (you must achieve a minimum score of B2)

Students who have received a C or better grade in a college-level, non-ESL English
composition course at an accredited U.S. college or university are exempt from the
above English language exams. You are encouraged to submit your entire application
package, including supporting materials, at least four months prior to the beginning
of the term for which you are applying.

English as a Second Language (ESL) Pathway for Admission

CNM is pleased to announce its ESL Pathways program. International applicants
who apply for the 2020 Fall Term and have one of the following scores can be
conditionally admitted and receive an I-20 for one or two semesters ONLY:

  • TOEFL score between 44-60
  • IELTS score of 5.0
  • CEFR score of B1 High

This admission would be a mixture of college level classes with training in the
English language.
