To apply for Regular Admission students must:
Fall: July 15th
Spring: Dec. 1st
Summer: April 30th
International students seeking an F-1 student visa will be sent an I-20 non-immigrant form for the duration of time you have requested to study at CELAC.
For Conditional UNM Admission:
UNM can issue a conditional admission letter to international students who meet the academic requirements for admission but who do not yet meet the minimum English proficiency requirement. Students who receive conditional admission must successfully complete the CELAC program at UNM and receive a passing score on the institutional TOEFL with the CELAC Academic Manager’s recommendation to transfer to academic study.
To apply for Conditional Admission students must:
Complete the on-line UNM application and pay the $50 application fee on line
Once we have received all documents and the student is determined to be eligible, he/she will be sent the conditional admission letter along with a one-year UNM CELAC program I-20. Once the English proficiency level is achieved through CELAC and the student is admitted to UNM, a new I-20 for academic studies will be issued.
If you are currently studying in the U.S. on a F-1 student visa and would like to transfer to CELAC, please print out this CELAC Transfer Form. Please read the directions for transferring carefully. You will have to fill out the top part of the form and have your current school advisor fill it out the bottom part. Your advisor will need to then fax it to us.
