Documentation Needed for Admissions
Applicants are required to submit to the Admissions office a completed application form and a $30 application fee. The application for admission is available from the college’s website at www.ccm.edu . All matriculated students must arrange to have high school and/or college authorities forward official transcripts to the Office of Admissions. The student must also provide:
1. Submission of a Valid Record of Immunization
New Jersey law requires all full-time students to present a valid record of immunization against measles, mumps and rubella as a condition of enrollment. The state requires two doses of live measles containing vaccine administered after one year of age, after 1968, and 30 days apart. Additionally, students must submit documentation of immunization of the three-dose Hepatitis B vaccine. Individuals who are not in the Nursing or Allied Health programs are exempt from these requirements only if they were born before 1957. Immunization documentation must be submitted to the Office of Health Services prior to the beginning of the student’s second semester of enrollment.
2. Submission of Medical Information in the Form Prescribed by the College
This information is required of students enrolled in certain academic programs or involved in intercollegiate athletics.
3. English Language Proficiency
All applicants whose first language is not English have the option to submit TOEFL, SAT or ACT scores or other proficiency evidence to support their admission applications to County College of Morris (CCM). However, upon arrival on campus, all students will be required to take an additional placement examination administered by CCM before registering for classes or other academic work.
- F-1 visa applicants and applicants applying from overseas – including Puerto Rico – must submit a TOEFL score of at least 97 (computer-based test) or 32 (Internet-based) or a minimum IELTS exam score of 5 by July 1 for the Fall Semester or November 1 for the Spring Semester.
- F-1 visa applicants submitting scores below the minimum will not be offered admission because we will be unable to guarantee a full-time schedule as is required of F-1 students.
- F-1 visa applicants will be required to write a LOEP essay to assist in ESL placement prior to registering for class
4. Proof of Resident Status
Students who are non-immigrants, visa holders, temporary residents, refugees or employment authorization card holders (I-688A) must present evidence of their status to the Admissions office.
Permanent Resident (I-551) students must present to the Admissions office their cards that are not expired. Copies are not accepted.
Undocumented students must provide proof of attending a New Jersey High School for three (3) or more years and proof of having graduated from a New Jersey high school or that they possess a GED or equivalent. Undocumented students must also sign a notarized affidavit indicating that the student has filed an application to legalize his/her immigration status or indicating an intent to legalize immigration status.
The tuition rate charged to an eligible undocumented individual who satisfies all requirements shall be based upon where he/she lives. All others will be billed the out-of-state rate. When all admission materials have been received, the college may request a personal interview.
