Application Process

  • When applying to a particular school or program, the most important thing to do is to read the application materials very carefully and to meet the prescribed deadlines listed. In most cases, applications post marked past the due date will not be reviewed. In any case, it is better to plan on having applications post marked a fair amount of time prior to the due date. Note: Our offices are closed over winter holiday, so it is important that any requests for transcripts or counselor recommendations needed during this time be made at least two weeks prior to break.

     

    The process and requested materials vary depending on the type of school or program. For each type, this is a typical list of required materials. Again, do check individual school and program websites.
