Applications received after the deadline will be considered on a case-by-case basis according to program availability. Admission cannot be guaranteed.
* Late applications will be considered, but please note that admission cannot be guaranteed. It is important to apply as early as possible to allow enough time to mail documents and obtain a student visa. If you are applying from within the United States, application time is generally shorter.
** A note about half-semesters: To provide some flexibility, ESL students who are already in the country and who are eligible to study may transfer to enroll for a half semester. Please note that space cannot be guaranteed. Contact the Director about availability of half-terms.
