Admissions Journey

At CALIMT, our admissions journey starts with YOU, our prospective student.  We believe in getting to know you and your goals. We achieve this through setting up a consultation. During the consultation, you’ll speak with one of our Admissions Advisor to learn about your current situation, understanding your goals, and address any questions you may have about our school and program.  You will also learn about our school, learning modalities, programs, faculty, and staff to help you determine if we’re a good fit. Our goal is to enroll graduates and students who will be successful in our program- your success is our priority! Once we’ve had a chance to get to know each other and determine we’re a match, the next step is to submit an admissions application.

We look forward to speaking with you. To learn about our school and program, we encourage you to call us today at 949-872-2224 or e-mail us at admissions@calimt.edu to schedule a no-obligation consultation.
