Fall 2014 applications are due March 7, 2014.
To ensure notification prior to April registration, please complete application by the deadline. We will continue to accept applications after the deadline until all spots are filled.
The link to Fall 2014 applications will be available in mid-December (final exam week). We begin accepting applications after fall grades have been submitted.
Before filling out an application, please be sure to have an updated transcript, preferably in .pdf form, as well as a personal statement ready prior to filling out an application (see below for prompt).
Personal statement (no more than 400 words) addressing the following:
Describe something that inspires you or something that you have learned recently (e.g. hobby, watching or participating in an athletic performance, community service, learning from a new friend, a book, article, piece of music, TED talk).
Tips on writing your personal statement:
- It doesn't need to be grand-- just something that has inspired you.
- Make it personal. This is your chance to tell us about your challenges and growth as a learner.
- Tell us something new other than what we can deduce from your transcript or other information in your application.
- Avoid excessive metaphor or imaginary description. This may confuse the reader and not be what you intended.
- Emphasize the positive.
