We encourage you to apply when you feel your application is strongest, though it is worth noting that there are more seats and scholarship money available earlier in the admissions cycle.


Deposit Deadlines

Admitted applicants will be asked to pay a $4,000 deposit in order to reserve their place in the class.

Deposits are non-refundable, but will be applied to your tuition account as credit when you enroll.

Interviews

Qualified applicants will be invited to interview after their application has been reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Interviews play a critical role in our assessment of candidates and are required prior to admittance into the program. For the foreseeable future, all interviews will be conducted virtually via Zoom.
