APPLICATION PROCESS


The application process for the Spring 2021 semester will be done in three tiers

The first tier will include all applicants who have applied 11/25/2020 and before (and have submitted all required additional information by 11/27/2020 ). 

From this pool, a select amount of applicants will be invited during a two-week period (11/30/2020 - 12/11/2020) to GEEA Building to undergo an English level test, personal interview, and a tryout to assess qualifications.

Finally, applicants will receive notifications by 12/16/2020 that state whether they have been accepted, rejected, or deferred. All students who are deferred will once again be considered during the second tier process. 

The second tier will also undergo the same process as the first tier students, but acceptance will be more competitive based on the availability of remaining seats. 

The third tier will only be conducted if there are remaining seats on a rolling basis, meaning students will be considered case by case for acceptance.
