3.     Before jumping to submit online application, you are strongly recommended to familiarize yourself with CPU by visiting our website and check all the information concerning application.

4.     Postgraduates shall learn about their areas of interest and know about our professors. You may email a few professors that potentially match your research interest, but do not continuously email the professors that you don’t know well!

5.     Postgraduates are strongly advised to contact CPU professors first and try to get a Provisional acceptance from CPU Professors (for Postgraduate applicants only) from any professor, which will increase the chance of being accepted by the Admissions office. The template is available at

6.     Please check and confirm all the information before you click “submit.” Once submitted, all the information cannot be edited or changed from your side. Moreover, upon receiving your Admission Notice, you will no longer be able to change your program, major and school, unless the university decides to shut down the program for its own reason.


1.      We have NEVER AND EVER authorized any individual or organization to collect payment in the name of CPU and please check with the Admissions Office before you process any payment.

2.     A pre-acceptance letter will be issued for the student to confirm and pay after he/she fulfills the requirements and is accepted.

3.     Students will be asked to pay the commitment fee or/and application fee only after they are accepted and receive the per-acceptance letter. Full scholarship students need to pay the commitment fee (2000RMB) and all other students need to pay the commitment fee (2000RMB) and application fee (400 RMB).

5.     All the pre-paid fees are nonrefundable unless otherwise specified.

6.     During online application, you will be asked to upload transaction note(s). Despite of your effort, international transactions may be rejected for multiple reasons. Upon your arrival, the university Financial Office will double-check if the transaction is successful. Make sure to mark each transaction with your application ID. Keep the transaction notes for your own convenience. Even if someone else (family, agency) is dealing with the transaction for you, collect the bank notes yourself and take them to CPU.
