Admission Decision

Admission Decision sent to Candidate

Admission decisions fall into three categories, post-interview:


Offer of Admission

The Office of Admissions will notify the candidate by email of the offer of admission. The offer of admission must be accepted and confirmed within 14 days from the date of the emailed letter of acceptance. The 14-day time allowance to accept the offer is subject to change as the start of the academic year approaches. If no response is received within the time period given, the candidate will be placed on an acceptance wait list.

We recommend students who have been offered admission explore the loan programs CNUCOP has available to determine if they will be granted loan pre-approval, prior to sending a confirmation and the non-refundable enrollment fee deposit. Information about the current CNUCOP loan programs can be found on our web site under Financial Aid.

The college is unable to offer federally sponsored loan programs to help finance your education.

Decision Hold

The Admissions Committee will accept candidates post-interview at intervals throughout the admission cycle. In some cases, the Committee chooses to revisit an interviewed candidate’s application, which may place the post-interview decision on hold. The Office of Admissions will contact the candidate, as soon as the Committee releases their decision.

It is not necessary to call, email or visit the Office of Admissions regarding their post-interview status. Your position could be jeopardized, if these instructions are not followed. Since we utilize electronic messaging, all candidates should check email on a daily basis, including their spam email box. Since notifications are made using email and/or phone, it is very important to notify the Office of Admissions of any change of address, phone, or email. Also, please make sure your email program accepts attachments.


Unfortunately, we are unable to offer admission or wait list status to all applicants who interview. If a candidate interviews and receives a letter of denial, the applicant is welcome to email Admissions to request suggestions on how to improve their application. The best time to do this is during summer break. The Admissions Office email address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
