  • If you wish to enroll, but are unable to pay the enrollment deposit by the December 1 or May 1 deadline due to documented financial hardship, please write a letter to This letter must be received no later than January 1, 2018 and April 1, 2018, respectively and should include any/all extenuating circumstances.


  • All admissions are ultimately contingent upon successful completion and submission of final transcripts reflecting academic achievement similar to our assessment at the time of your admission. We expect you to continue to prepare at a similar level of academic rigor, and with similar or better results as your enrollment date approaches. If we receive final transcripts/documents that reflect information that is different from our admissions assessment, we reserve the right to review your admission offer again and to take appropriate action. This may include a change or terms of admissions, or a rescission of your admission offer.
