Admission Requirements

The minimum academic requirement for admissions is a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.50 on CMCC's 4.00 grade point scale from the last three full years (15 full year courses or 90 credit hours) of undergraduate university level study. Marks obtained from graduate level study (Master's or Doctoral) are not calculated in the CGPA.  There are no prerequisites for admission.

Following a successful admissions interview, applicants holding Master's or Doctoral degrees at the time of the application deadline will be ranked at the 75th percentile of the admissions pool, or will be ranked according to their undergraduate CGPA, whichever is higher.

All academic requirements must be completed no later than May 31 of the year of registration at CMCC.

Proof of English language proficiency

Students for whom English is not a first language will be asked to identify such on their application, and may be required to submit evidence of their proficiency in English by demonstrating:

  • A sufficient university level course work in English; and/or
  • A minimum score of 88 on the internet based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL); and/or
  • A minimum score of 7.0 on the Academic International English Language Test System (IELTS)

For more information about TOEFL, please visit www.ets.org/toefl (CMCC's institutional code is 8866), and for more information about the IELTS, please visit http://ielts.org.

Transcripts

Transcripts from institutions outside of Canada must be evaluated on a course by course basis by World Education Services, Inc (WES Canada). This is the only agency from which CMCC will accept foreign transcript evaluations. Applicants must set up an account with WES, designating CMCC as a recipient.

Official copies of transcript evaluations must be forwarded directly by WES to CMCC. For more information, please contact World Education Services, Inc. www.wes.org/ca. Notarized English translations of documents and certified true photocopies of the originals of all documents that are in a language other than English must be provided at the time of application.

Applicants with disabilities

Applicants with disabilities will not be summarily denied admission, nor will higher academic requirements be demanded. An applicant with a disability will not be required to disclose his/her disability during the application process.

Prior to accepting an offer of admission, the applicant with a disability is required to disclose any functional limitations associated with carrying out classroom, laboratory and clinical assignments, including microscopic work, imaging, interpretations, chiropractic techniques, or the equivalent; pass written, oral and practical examinations, and meet all the other requirements of the Doctor of Chiropractic degree program.

CMCC will consider requests for academic accommodation in accordance with related policies and guidelines. The accommodations provided by CMCC are given within the context of the four year CMCC program only, and are not intended to extend to other situations such as future professional examinations (e.g., licensing examinations) or decisions regarding future licensure.

Students with disabilities are strongly advised to consult the chiropractic regulatory board(s) in the country, province or state in which they intend to practice. Please refer to page 86 in the Academic Calendar Policies section for CMCC's policy, Academic Accommodation for Students With Disabilities.
