We must have your TOEFL scores before a final decision can be made on your file.

What if my English Proficiency score isn’t high enough?

Unfortunately, CCM cannot accept students, even conditionally, who have not met the English Proficiency requirements.

How do I get the I-20?

You must be accepted before an I-20 can be issued. When you are accepted, you will need to verify funding using the Financial Certification Form. If you are using your own personal funds, then you will need to show funds for all years of study. Undergraduates must verify funds for $44,272 per year, and Graduates $43,488. You must verify total funds from official sources. All amounts are subject to change. If you are awarded a scholarship, it will be deducted from the above totals. CCM does not issue the I-20. The UC International Services Office will mail your I-20 after they receive all required documents, including the financial certification form.
 

Do international students qualify for financial aid?

Unfortunately, international students do not qualify for need-based financial aid. However, you can still receive a talent-based scholarship or assistantship.
