Due to the increased number of applications received in recent years, you may be placed on a waiting list. On May 1, we will begin to notify applicants who have been placed on the waiting list whether we will be able to admit them into the program on a space available basis. We regret the fact that we may not be able to admit every qualified applicant into the program this year.

Please do not make travel plans until you receive a formal acceptance.


Our cancellation and refund policy is as follows: full refund with more than 15 days notice; no refund within a 15-day period of the start of the program, except in the case of an emergency. If for any reason you are not accepted into an application based program, we will refund the full program fee.
