Decisions are made within 1-2 weeks of receipt of a completed application, at which time the student’s courses are confirmed in writing. A completed application consists of four parts: a completed and signed application form, a deposit, a copy of a transcript or recent report card, and a personal statement. 

  • Course Guarantee. 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 onto the program will automatically receive their first choice of courses, subject to enrollment levels. The course guarantee date for The Cambridge Prep Experience is February 2, 2018.

  • 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 as soon as 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 25, 2018.
