An applicant may be admitted to CIHS full-time or part-time. Full-time students take a minimum of thirty-two (32) units per year. International students residing in the U.S. or students on a student (F-1) visa are required to attend school full time.
To be accepted into one of CIHS degree programs does not necessarily guarantee the student will be granted admission to the other programs. Students who are awarded a degree program with CIHS may be granted admission to another degree program after fulfilling all admission requirements.
To be admitted to a Bachelor’s degree program, the applicant must hold a high school diploma or have fulfilled up to one hundred thirty-five (135) credit units at an approved college.
To be admitted to a Master’s degree program, the applicant must have earned a bachelor’s degree in a field of study related to the degree program for which he or she is applying.
To be admitted to a Ph.D. degree program, the applicant must have earned a master’s degree or equivalent in an area of study relevant or related to the Ph.D. degree for which he or she is applying. The applicant may be required to take an entrance examination.
