Admissions Criteria

For admission to CMTC, candidates must complete all the requirements listed in the CMTC Admission Application. They must also have the pre-requisite Child Development course completed to receive a full credential. If an adult learner completes the program without the Child Development pre-requisite, they will be limited to a provisional certificate only.

If an adult learner joins the program having an Associate’s degree, they will be eligible to earn an Associate’s level credential. Adult learners who complete the program with a Bachelor’s Degree will receive a full Montessori credential.

A minimum cumulative college GPA of 2.5 is required for acceptance.
