Before you can apply, you will need to create an online account. You will need a valid email address, mailing address and other personal information. Once you have created an online account (or if you already have one), you may apply for a program.
Review the steps below to make sure you have everything you need before you begin the online application process.
Step 1 - Decide on your program(s), length(s), and dates.
Step 2 - Determine if you need to provide any of the following additional documentation with your program application, and collect any required documents so you are prepared to upload them.
*These forms can be completed online with your program application. If you submit a paper application, please make sure you download the paper copies and submit the appropriate forms with your application to avoid delays.
Step 3 - Complete a program application, including uploading the supporting documents (if applicable), and pay the $200 nonrefundable Program Application Fee. Visa, MasterCard or Discover are accepted online.
Step 4 - Review housing options and apply for housing once you have received notification of your admission. You must pay the $200 nonrefundable Housing Placement Fee, if you wish to apply for our on-campus or off-campus housing.
Important Things to Remember
Applications cannot be processed until the appropriate application fee(s) are received.
Courses, dates, fees and other expenses are subject to change without notice.
We recommend you apply as early as possible, so that you have enough time to apply for a visa, make travel arrangements, and arrive in time for orientation. We have recommended application deadlines to help you plan ahead.
You must be at least 13 years of age to complete an online application for one of our programs. Your parent or legal guardian will be required to complete a Parental Release Form if you are under the age of 18.
Please note that you cannot submit credit card information via email, because it is NOT secure. If you want to pay by credit card, complete the credit card information on your paper application or contact our office for more options.
Applications take approximately 10 work days to process. Once we finish processing your application, we will send you an acceptance package via FedEx.
