The first step is to select the certificate that's right for you. Next, decide whether you would like to begin your program in the fall or spring term. Check application deadlines.
Note: Some certificates begin only in the fall. Summer applications are not accepted.
Your complete application has eight components, and each of these items must be provided for your application to be considered. All documents must be original, unless stated otherwise.
Mail your complete application documents to:
International Student Administrative Services

The full application review process can take three to four weeks. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, in the order they are received, and only complete applications are reviewed. Courses can fill before the application deadline, so send your completed application as soon as possible. You will be notified by mail regarding your acceptance status and further instructions.
