Next application deadline is Friday, September 30, 2022.

The CMST Department invites applications from current LMU students who are interested in declaring CMST as their first or second major. Entrance into our program is competitive and includes the submission of an application. The Department holds two applications cycles during the academic year:

  • A fall semester cycle with accepted students beginning their CMST coursework in the following spring semester, and
  • A spring semester cycle with accepted students beginning their CMST coursework in the following fall semester.

How to Transfer

If you are interested in applying for internal transfer into the CMST major or adding CMST as a second major, please review and complete the CMST Internal Transfer Application Fall 2022

A committee of CMST faculty and the Department Chair will review all completed applications with care. Honoring an organic weighing principle, we consider all indicators of academic excellence, preparedness, and the overall “fit” with our program. Applicants will be informed of our decision approximately four weeks after the deadline.

If you have questions about the internal transfer application or our major, please contact Lisa Tanaka, our Senior Administrative Coordinator, at lisa.lugo@lmu.edu.
