CMC requires the SAT with Essay or the ACT with Writing for first-year admission and does not prefer one test over the other. Standardized test scores must be submitted directly to CMC by the appropriate testing agency. Scores received via any other means (i.e., fax or high school transcript) will not be considered official.
ACT with Writing
The Admission Committee will take the highest score from the individual subsections of the ACT to give you the highest ACT Composite score.
ACT middle 50% range: 31-33
SAT with Essay
For Fall 2017 applicants, CMC will accept both the revised SAT and the old SAT. We will compare your scores using concordance tables to determine your highest scores on either the revised SAT or the old SAT. We will not superscore across the revised SAT and the old SAT.
For Fall 2018 applicants, we will only accept the revised SAT with Essay and ACT with Writing. We will superscore both tests.
The middle 50% ranges listed below are reflective of the old SAT.
SAT Critical Reading middle 50% range: 650-740
SAT Math middle 50% range: 670-750
SAT Writing middle 50% range: 670-750
The middle 50% ranges listed above are reflective of the old SAT. To see where your new scores fall within the range for the old SAT you can use the online score converter found at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/scores/understanding-scores/sat-score-converter.
SAT Subject Tests
The Admission Committee does not require that you take the SAT Subject Tests. Homeschooled students, however, are required to submit scores from two exams. One of the scores submitted must be from a math Subject Test.
Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS)
Students whose native language is not English must also submit official results from the TOEFL or IELTS. A minimum score of 100 on the Internet-based TOEFL exam or a minimum score of 600 on the paper-based TOEFL exam is required. For the IELTS, a minimum band score of 7 is required.
