A student attending college for the first time, either immediately after high school graduation or whenever you're ready, regardless of age. (May have taken college classes in high school.)

Ready to apply?

CMU has rolling admissions. There is no application deadline. Applications are accepted throughout the year and processing times for applications are quick. Once your application is complete (including submission of official transcripts) you will receive an admissions decision within a few weeks.

SAT/ACT results are not required for admission purposes and can be used for Merit Scholarship eligibility. If you send your results after you are admitted, you will automatically be reconsidered for scholarship purposes.

When you're ready to apply to Colorado Mesa University, remember our Admissions Office staff is here to help you. If at any time you have questions about the process, don't hesitate to reach out to your admissions counselor.
