Application Process


We’re excited to receive your application!

We actively encourage applicants of diverse backgrounds including race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and economic status. To read more about our commitment to inclusion, check out Our Approach and our Access and Inclusion Scholarships.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until three weeks prior to program start date. Our Fall programs tend to reach capacity in mid June and Spring programs reach capacity in mid December. Once we have reached our capacity students will either be placed on a waiting list or, if desired, offered a space on a different program pending enrollment.

Please Note: Southeast Asia & India programs – applications are accepted until 5 weeks prior to start date due to Visa requirements.

We’re excited to have you begin your journey with Carpe Diem.
