What is required to apply?
A personal statement is a short essay of approximately 500 words to help us get to know you. Tell us about why you would like to attend, what interests you about your Major and Minor courses, and what you will contribute to the program. Let us know about your academic and extracurricular interests and anything else that will help us to get to know you.
A copy of your most recent transcript or grade report from school. This can be sent to our New York address, faxed, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications require a deposit of $1050 US to be marked as complete. This is deducted from the total tuition upon acceptance and is refundable.
For Language Immersion Students Only: Writing Sample and Recommendation
Students applying for a language immersion program (L'Académie de France or La Academia de España), and students taking immersion courses in Paris and Barcelona, are asked to submit a writing sample in French/Spanish and a completed recommendation form from their French/Spanish teacher. This is not required if taking beginner French/Spanish. This form is provided during the application and can also be accessed here.
Admission Department Review
Our admissions team carefully reviews the completed application and contacts students in the order in which they've applied. Admissions decisions are typically sent by email within two weeks of receipt of a completed application.
Rolling Admissions Policy:
We accept applications throughout the year until the programs are full. While we do not have application deadlines, we do have course guarantee dates.
Course Guarantee Dates
We recommend that students apply as early as possible. Students whose applications are postmarked on or before each program's course guarantee date and who are accepted into the program will be guaranteed their first choice of courses, subject to enrollment minima. The course guarantee dates for each program are:
The Oxford Spring Seminar
US, Spain, France, & Scotland
The Oxford and Cambridge Prep Experiences
The NYC and Oxford Seminars
Please note: These are not admission deadlines. We accept applications on a rolling basis until the program is full.
Students who cannot be placed in their first choice of Major or Minor course will be automatically placed in their second or third choice, subject to the availability of that course, and also placed on the waiting list for their first choice. If wait-listed for a class, the student will be notified when a space becomes available.
If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment levels, students will be notified immediately and placed in their second choice. Students who wish to change courses may do so by writing to our New York office up until May 26, 2018.
