On-campus interviews for those selected will be scheduled during the fall, and orientation for those admitted will occur in December.

Once admitted, a $500 non-refundable seat fee (payable by money order or cashiers’ check only) is required of all students. This fee will later be applied to tuition but is forfeited by those who do not enroll in the first semester.
