Deposit

Applicants offered admission to the program must submit a non-refundable deposit of $2,000 to reserve a spot in the program. This deposit is a partial payment of the fall tuition bill and will be credited to the tuition bill during the fall semester of classes. Instructions on how the deposit can be paid will be included in the admission offer notification.
