Admissions and Applications

Admissions Process

We begin accepting applications on January 1st and acceptances are completed on a rolling basis until full enrollment and then a waiting list is established. If accepted, a spot will be offered and held for the student.

Please note that a $125 non-refundable deposit per applicant is required for all day student applications. U.S. boarding students are required to submit a $250 non-refundable deposit. International boarding students are required to submit a $350 non-refundable deposit. A deposit is not a guarantee of admission. 

Tuition, minus the nonrefundable deposit, must be paid in full by June 1st. Any applications received after June 1st  must be paid in full. Students are notified on a rolling admission basis. In order to accept a student, the Summer Programs Office must have the completed application, all signatures on the application, current photo, completed Recommendation Form for a credit course, and a non-refundable application fee. Learn more about tuition here.

All international students will be tested on their English comprehension and speaking abilities upon arrival except Hun students. If a student does not have the necessary English abilities for two or three Hun Summer School courses, he or she will be placed on an appropriate American Culture and Language Institute track to continue to refine their English abilities.
