Apply to Become an Extended Education Student

  1. Complete the Extended Education application forms. Submit the form via mail, fax, or email.
  2. Once the form and any required documents (if applicable) are received, Registrar's office will inform the applicant via email regarding acceptance and registration in classes.
  3. The student will be sent information to access the CMU Student Portal. Use the CMU Student portal to view:

  4. Students who wish to withdraw from a course must complete and submit a course change form. Ceasing to attend classes or not paying for the class does not constitute an official withdrawal and may result in the student receiving a failing grade for a course.
