Upon receiving an offer of admission, applicants will be required to submit a deposit of $2,000 to secure their place in the Program within two weeks. When the student matriculates, the deposit will be applied towards tuition for the first semester.


Lightning Round: Applying in this deadline enables students to receive an admissions decision by August 30, which gives them adequate time to update their resume before the fall career fairs. Students applying in the Lightning Round should plan to attend the FINC 601 Career Fair Prep Session in the Wehner Building on Thursday, September 5, 2019 at 7:30pm in Wehner 185.

Priority 1: This is the primary deadline. It gives maximum time to register for any prerequisite courses the student needs to take in the spring semester. The deadline also gives time for the student to prepare their resume for the spring career fairs.

Priority 2: For students who have too busy of a fall semester, this deadline offers a final option. The deadline allows the student to know just in time to register for any prerequisite courses and to prepare their resume for the spring career fairs.
