Carnegie Mellon University Undergraduate Admission
Choose Your Program. Change the World.
Are you going to be a junior or senior in high school? If so, consider spending the summer in one of our distinct summer Pre-College programs:
Our summer Pre-College programs will show you what life at Carnegie Mellon is all about - from the classroom to what's happening on weekends. You'll meet people from all over the world, be inspired by our world-renowned faculty, take part in the excitement of campus and have the opportunity to explore the city of Pittsburgh.

The online application for the 2016 Summer Pre-College Program is available. Your application for admission will consist of an application form provided by Carnegie Mellon and documents you'll be required to gather from other resources (i.e. high school transcripts). The Pre-College Application deadline is April 1st.
Students must be in high school, have completed their sophomore year and be 16 to 18 years old (born between August 6, 1997 and June 25, 2000). This doesn't apply to commuters in the AP/EA program who have a permanent address within Allegheny County.
Due to the lengthy process for obtaining international documentation we recommend that international students be mindful of the application deadline. Applying earlier will provide the time necessary to process information as quickly as possible for I-20 administration.
