Things to SEND

Please remember to do each of these things before you arrive!

Return your completed MEDICAL FORM

Please be sure to complete the immunization section; if this section is left blank or incomplete, New York State law says you will have be re-immunized when you arrive. Getting a set of shots you do not really need is no fun, so complete this section of the form carefully. Contact our nurse if you have specific questions.

Be sure you have sent complete TRANSCRIPTS

Transcripts are different from report cards. Many applicants sent us a mid-year report card, but we need your official school record for all your high school coursework. Please ask your school to give those to you or send them directly to us--either way is fine. Asian students--since American schools have 4 years of high school, we need a transcript for the third year of your middle school. That third year of middle school is the equivalent of the first year (9th grade) of high school in America. By the middle of July, you should receive a letter specifying which of your transcripts we still need.

Be sure you have sent your TUITION

International Students: If your application for a visa is denied, our policy is to refund your pre-payment. That is the only reason we will refund it. Please contact our business manager if you need specific payment information. Tuition is due June 1.
