Standard Admission Eligibility

Students may apply for admission to the College of Menominee Nation (CMN) at any time throughout the year. As an open enrollment institution we guarantee admittance if all admission requirements have been met. Specific programs require separate admission criteria and have limited enrollment. CMN does not guarantee acceptance into these programs. Click here to Request Information about the College of Menominee Nation.

The application process is straightforward and explained in some detail below.

Requirements for Admission

  • CMN applicants must be a US Citizen or permanent resident.
  • CMN applicants must be a high school graduate, or be in possession of a GED or HSED. For more information about Wisconsin GED/HSED program requirements, visit the official Department of Public Instruction website.
    • Individuals that received a GED or HSED outside of the State of Wisconsin will be considered based on review of State and program requirements from which the certificate or diploma was awarded.
    • Individuals who earned high school or college credits or diploma from an international school will require further review and may require additional cost for transcripts.
  • Home-schooled applicants will be considered on an individual basis.

CMN does not currently accept International students.


Step One: Apply Online

CMN applications are handled through our student system, My Empower. When you begin your application, you'll be prompted to select the style that best suits your needs. You may also select one of the styles in the list below and be taken to an application suited to you.

  • Degree Seekers: New students who have never enrolled in a college.
  • Returning Students: Students who have stepped away from CMN for a year or more, and did not enroll in another college in the interim.
  • Non-Degree-Seeking Students: Students who are not interested in enrolling in a formal degree program. These students tend to take coursework for job advancement or self-enrichment.
  • Transfer Students: Students who've been previously enrolled in another post-secondary institution, and wish to continue or finish their education at CMN.
  • High School Students: Students currently attending high school with a desire to participate in our Learn & Earn or Early College Credit Programs (ECCP).
