Deposit upon acceptance

Upon written notification of acceptance into the program, the applicant must send a deposit fee of $1500.00 within ten days or he/she automatically loses his/her reserved place.  This deposit fee is applied to the first term tuition and is non-refundable should the applicant withdraw his/her acceptance at a later date. 


Applicants who are not successful in obtaining a training position may subsequently reactivate their application for the following year consideration.  A reapplication letter of instruction must be accompanied by a $100.00 reapplication fee.  Applicants are encouraged to update their application material to reflect the most current and accurate information.  Completed application packets will be retained for one year following each review.
