Carnegie Mellon’s Admission Process
Carnegie Mellon’s holistic admission process is about more than just admitting a group of students who have the potential to succeed academically. It’s about selecting students who will add to the overall Carnegie Mellon community.
When we review applications there are four main areas that we look at – your high school performance, extracurricular contributions, demonstrated interest and standardized test results. We’re not looking for the ‘perfect’ student, but students who are a good fit for Carnegie Mellon.
With each incoming first-year class, Carnegie Mellon gains innovators, dreamers and creative thinkers who help shape our university and one day, will help shape the world.
