Programs Application

Admissions for our Research Programs require a dedicated online application platform, different from those for online learning or art performance programs. Applicants must meticulously prepare a strong application, including a minimum school GPA of 3.5, a well-crafted essay demonstrating technical proficiency and intellectual depth, and robust recommendations from credible sources. It is essential to thoroughly review these requirements before the final submission of the application.

Applications that are submitted per the designated deadlines for each program will be evaluated, and decisions will be communicated between April 1st and April 15th. The outcomes of these admission decisions will be available on the applicants’ online application accounts. Notification will be emailed to inform applicants when their admission decision can be reached. For additional details regarding the admissions decision process, kindly refer to the Application Information page on our website.
