General Entry

Thank you for you interest in our program. Applications often exceed the number of spots available annually. We welcome your submission from which we will select the most qualified candidates. Possession of the minimum requirements does not guarantee an interview or offer of admission.

Application Deadline

An application must be completed online at cmcc.ca. by the deadline noted on the CMCC online application portal. Due to the nature of the selection process, the deadline applies to all documentation and cannot be extended.

Application Fee

All applications are subject to a non-refundable application fee, payable online by credit card.

Submission of Documentation

The following documentation is required to be received in Student Services by the published deadline:

  • online application
  • official academic transcripts received directly from all postsecondary institutions at which the applicant has been registered
  • all additional documentation required for international applicants or those studying in a foreign university, if applicable.
Academic assessment
  • The CGPA for the purpose of assessing admission eligibility will be calculated based upon the equivalent of the last three full years of study (15 full courses or 90 credits) as taken in reverse chronological order as reflected upon the applicant’s transcript(s). For the purpose of the academic assessment, all qualifying university level courses are converted to a 4.00 grade point scale.
    • Only pre-professional university undergraduate level courses will be included in the admission CGPA computation. Grades for courses taken at the graduate and/ or professional school level will not be assessed. However, applicants holding a completed Masters or Doctoral degree at the time of application will be initially assessed based upon their undergraduate program of study. If eligible, they will then be ranked at the 75th percentile of the applicant pool or their undergraduate CGPA, whichever is higher.
    • Applicants who apply prior to the completion of the equivalent of three years (15 full courses or 90 credits) of university level study will be assessed for admission on the basis of having completed two full years (10 full courses or 60 credits). If deemed eligible and successful in the application for admission, an offer of admission will be conditional upon the successful completion of the minimum academic requirements before May 31 of the year of registration.
    • Credits earned by courses taken in Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) programs will not be included in the CGPA calculation and will not be counted toward the minimum admissions standard. CMCC Academic Calendar 2022-2023 37
    • Unassigned transfer credits shown on the applicant’s transcript will not be included in the calculation of the application CGPA. These credits will, however, count toward the minimum number of credits required for admission should it be necessary to count them in the assessment of the minimum Standard.
  • Applicants whose academic record does not fully reflect their capabilities due to extenuating circumstances may submit additional documentation at the time of application. Submissions will be reviewed and decisions to amend the associated component of the admissions score will be determined by the Registrar.
Admission Interview

Interviews are granted to select applicants. Possession of the minimum academic requirements does not guarantee an interview.

  • The interview assesses competencies that have been identified as being vital for success in chiropractic education.
  • Qualified candidates are notified of the interview date. Applicants who have not been granted an interview will also be notified.
  • A non-refundable interview fee is due in advance of the interview.
  • All interviews are conducted in English using an online video interview platform.
Personal Statement

Candidates will be required to provide a written submission that describes their motivation and preparation for a professional healthcare program.

Provisos

Failure by the applicant to comply with the application instructions or meet the deadline for all documentation may result in cancellation of the application and forfeiture of the application fee.

An applicant supplying documentation or information that is found to be falsified, incomplete or misleading at the time of presentation, or subsequently, may be withdrawn from consideration and the application fee forfeited. Any student admitted to the program having submitted incorrect information will be required to withdraw with failure.
