3. Fill in and submit financial aid form

If you are planning to study just for the summer program or a two semester training track, you can fill out the financial aid application form using the links below.

Normally, we recommend that you wait until you have been accepted by the admissions committee before filling out the financial aid application (takes 20-30 minutes to fill out). However, if you are applying for this summer, and it is past March 15,  fill in the financial aid form now just to save time and ensure that you make the financial aid deadline for summer (April 15).

Deadlines – Early applications are given priority and facilitate visa processes, etc. for international students. Get your application in as soon as possible!
