JWU is world-renowned for its culinary school and it’s where famous Chef Emeril Lagasee studied his art. The university is accredited by the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation’s Accrediting Commission, which has also accredited CNM’s Culinary Arts programs.

To transfer, students must have at least a 2.0 GPA and have an Associate of Applied Science degree in Culinary Arts, with a concentration in Advanced Baking and Pastry or Culinary Arts. They will be eligible to pursue a Culinary Arts & Food Service Management bachelor’s degree or a Baking & Pastry & Food Service Management bachelor’s degree. JWU will accept all of CNM’s credits.

“The great part of this transfer agreement is the merit scholarships that are available to our students,” said Victoria Sánchez Martínez, Academic Affairs director of CNM’s Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management program. “Students graduating with their associate degree from CNM with a 3.5 GPA or above will automatically receive a $10,000 merit scholarship from JWU. Those graduating with a 2.75-3.49 GPA will be awarded an $8,000 scholarship, and those graduating with a 2.5-2.74 GPA will receive $5,000.”

JWU has four campuses with the closest in Denver. Other campuses are located in Providence, RI, Charlotte, NC and Miami, FL.
