Visiting Student Applicants

A limited number of places are available in the spring semester only for full-time visiting students. To be eligible, you must have completed at least one year as a full-time student at a U.S. college or university at which you are still currently enrolled. We do not accept applications from individuals who have already earned a bachelor's degree.
