  • How do I apply?

    Applications are open now and are reviewed on a rolling basis. You will receive a decision 3-4 business days after submission. Once accepted, registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and is not confirmed until you have completed the registration process and submitted payment in full.

If you do not wish to enroll in the alternate class, you will have the option to withdraw, and your tuition for that week will be refunded.
