Some programs at CNM are designated as “limited entry” because they have a limited number of slots available in the practical, laboratory or clinical setting, and/or require specialized certification or skills prior to entry. After being admitted to CNM, students interested in these programs must complete the limited entry application process and be selected to enter the program. Entrance to limited entry programs is not guaranteed.
The Office of Limited Entry Programs will coordinate entry processes for the following limited entry programs starting in November 2011
Students must meet minimum eligibility requirements to apply to these programs, such as a minimum GPA and completion of pre-entry courses. Students are awarded points for various criteria and then are selected for the program based on their score and the number of available seats. Visit the Office of Limited Entry Programs website at www.cnm.edu/limitedentry to view specific requirements, scoring criteria, application deadlines, and online application forms for each program.
Students are encouraged to meet with an academic advisor to create a plan for completing pre-entry coursework, and understand the steps needed to enter their intended program. After applying, they can meet with Office of Limited Entry Programs staff to discuss their application score and next steps.
The Office of Limited Entry Programs advisory committee will review limited entry selection criteria annually. Any changes will be posted to the limited entry website, and students will be provided with adequate notice.
Students do have the right to file a formal appeal of an Office of Limited Entry Programs decision, but only in specific circumstances. Visit the Office of Limited Entry Programs website to read more about the limited entry appeals process: www.cnm.edu/limitedentry.
Limited Entry Programs and Major Declaration
All CNM limited entry programs will be “closed” to declaration in either 2011 or 2012 (see below). Students will only be able to declare a “closed” limited entry major when they are accepted into the program through the limited entry application process. Students should declare another major while they wait to enter a limited entry program. For many students interested in health-related fields, Pre-Health Sciences may be a good choice. Students can meet with an Academic Advisor in Academic Advisement and Career Development for more information about their major options.
These limited entry programs will be “closed” to declaration in Summer Term 2011
Students must receive department approval before declaring and entering the following programs. Students should visit the program website for more information about specific entry requirements needed for their intended program
