Step 3: Submit your transcripts
Ask each of the colleges you’ve attended to send your official transcripts directly to CMU.
Step 4: Submit additional materials
Some programs require standardized test scores, a statement of purpose, letters of recommendation, a writing sample or other supplementary information. Check your program page for details.
