The time it takes to get an admission decision is based on how quickly all required documents are received at the College’s Office of Enrollment Services. Applications cannot be processed until all documents are received. Once an application is completed with all required documents, the application will be reviewed immediately. However, it may take a maximum of four weeks to render a decision and to have all admissions materials mailed to you.
Application deadlines are March 15th for admission to the fall semester and December 1st for admission to the spring semester. International applicants may be processed after this deadline on a space available basis. For F-1 status accepted students will receive an acceptance letter along with tuition and housing deposit form ($100) and an I-20 Request Form. Once the deposit and the I-20 Request Form are received, an I-20 will be issued. For J-1 status accepted students will receive an acceptance letter along with tuition and housing deposit form ($100) and an SEVIS DS-2019 Request form. Once the deposit and the SEVIS DS-2019 Request form are received, a SEVIS DS-2019 form will be issued.
It is very important to apply as early as possible. You will need to allow for time to schedule an appointment at the American Embassy/Consulate in your country to obtain a student visa (F-1), or exchange visitor visa (J-1), after you have been accepted to the College. Contact the American Embassy in your country to inquire how long it takes to schedule an appointment.
