Undergraduate Bridge Program
Our Undergraduate Bridge Program is designed for international undergraduate students who need to improve their English proficiency prior to beginning coursework toward a CMU degree. In the program, you'll work to meet your English proficiency requirements through our English Language Institute. A placement test prior to registering for classes will help determine which classes can be taken.
How to apply
If you wish to participate in our Undergraduate Bridge Program in order to gain English proficiency and admission into CMU, please follow these steps to assure your application is complete. We encourage you to submit all documents directly to the Admissions Office at least three months prior to the semester for which you intend to begin classes. Your application will be reviewed once all documents have been received.
Step 1: Application for admission
Application deadlines: Apply by May 15 if you are beginning classes in the fall semester. Apply by October 1 to begin classes in the spring semester.
Step 2: Official transcripts
Official transcripts should be sent directly to the Admissions Office by all secondary and post-secondary institutions which you have attended. Transcripts must include English translations.
You must mail your official transcripts from the school(s) you attended in an envelope sealed by the school(s) or have the school(s) send them directly to CMU at the address below. You must not open this envelope before sending it to CMU.
The school(s) you attended may also send them as official electronic copies. Make sure they come directly from the institution(s) and NOT from a personal email address. Electronic copies can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Please contact us with any questions about required transcripts, certificates, and examination results required for applicants from your country.
Notification of admission
You will be notified of your admission electronically. You will then be contacted with further instructions regarding the steps to obtain your I-20, which is required to obtain your student visa.
The I-20 will not be issued until after you are accepted and the required financial support information is received. After admission, you should monitor your email for additional information regarding the I-20 process.
