Semester Program Deadlines
Although we review applications for our semester programs on a
rolling basis, we encourage students to apply as early as possible
to increase their chances of attending their first choice program.
Programs can fill early! For example, we’ve found that spring
programs tend to fill by the beginning of October. However, we will
continue to accept applications as long as space is available. Once
you are accepted, in order to secure your place in the program, you
will need to submit a $250 non-refundable deposit.
