Next Steps

This section contains information about what you can expect after you have submitted your application.


For applicants whose complete application, including all supplementary materials, is submitted by the application deadline, an admissions decision will be provided in approximately two months. All communication regarding the status of your application, including admission decisions, will be through electronic mail only.

Offer and Tuition Deposit

Once an offer of admission has been made, the applicant will have two weeks to consider our offer and pay a non-refundable, non-transferrable $3,000 tuition deposit. This deposit must be paid with a credit card online and is applied to the summer quarter tuition balance.

International Applicants

If you are an admitted international applicant and indicated you would be requesting an I-20 or DS-2019, you will be given separate instructions. The request for visa status requires you to provide statements of financial ability. Refer to our tuition and fees section for more information. Due to the program starting in summer quarter, there is a limited amount of time to submit your request and provide the financial documents. Delaying this process, may result in not obtaining your visa in time to join the program.
