Acceptance to the Program

Acceptance into the program is based on (1) review of your completed application, (2) submission of required materials, and (3) your ability to meet the criteria below. Once accepted, you will receive an acceptance message by email. Your deposit check will be then deposited and your spot will be secured!

Please note the additional criteria for acceptance:

  • Your GPA must be above 2.75. If your GPA is below 2.75, you may still apply but you must provide 2 professor recommendations and your acceptance will be determined based on these recommendations.
  • You must not currently be on academic probation or suspension.
  • You must not be placed on academic probation or suspended between the time you are accepted in to the program and the departure date. If you are placed on probation after your spot is secured, you risk losing your spot and forfeiting your deposit.
  • If, prior to departure, circumstances arise that call a student's behavior into question, he or she may become ineligible for participation at the discretion of the program director.

If you are not granted acceptance into the program, your deposit check will be returned. If you are accepted into the program and your check is deposited, then you later choose not to participate, your deposit will be forfeited.
