Admissions criteria

Each application is carefully reviewed on its own merit using a holistic approach. The admission process takes into account the following: academic achievement in the most demanding subjects, ACT or SAT scores, caliber of high school program, school official recommendations, exceptional talents, involvement beyond the classroom, leadership potential, record of good citizenship, overall academic achievement, pre-CMU course selections and trends in academic progress.

The minimum GPA requirement for transfer students is a 2.3. If you have earned fewer than 24 credit hours, you will also need to provide us with a copy of your official high school transcript.

Although an admissions essay is not required, applicants may send a separate sheet to provide any information that should be considered while reviewing your application. You may wish to include extracurricular and leadership activities, employment, or explain special situations that impacted your academic record.
