Helpful Tips for Completing Your Application

You must submit the application in one sitting.

  • If you exit the page or close this window before submitting, your information will not be saved.
  • We highly recommend that you fill out your application on a computer so that you do not miss any sections, and to ensure that it’s submitted properly.
  • Each section will have instructions at the top. Please follow them carefully.

Apply on a computer with strong internet connection

Our application is currently not mobile-friendly and weak internet (ex. using data instead of wifi) may lead to submission errors. 

Birth Date

Click the year to change the year, then scroll through the months to find the date.


We recommend writing your essay in a separate document, and copying and pasting it into the application. Here is the essay question: 

Please tell us about yourself, your background, and your future aspirations/goals. What led you to apply for this program, and why is this a good time for you to pursue this program?


Please select BOTH English and your other language(s), for each question (speaking, reading and writing).

  • When you are describing where and when you learned these languages, it’s best to format it like this → English - Lived in the US for 20 years, Spanish - Spoken at home all my life, French - Learned in school, etc.

Current Employment

If you have a current paid job, you must fill in the information for your workplace, position and wages.

  • If you clicked on ‘Yes’ by accident, there is a button to ‘Delete this position’ at the bottom of the section, or you can go back to click ‘No’ on the question.
  • If you have multiple current paid jobs, there is a button to ‘Add another position’ at the bottom of the section.

Previous Work Experience

For past employment we do not require wage information, only position and details. There is a button to ‘Delete this position’ or ‘Add another position’ if you need to.


Please fill out information about each household member, including spouse, children and other dependents.

  • If a household member is currently employed, please check the box. A section will appear for their monthly income. This is required to determine your eligibility based on income.

Housing & Benefits

Please select all that apply from the dropdown list. You will need to click the dropdown multiple times to add multiple benefits.


We DO NOT make decisions about your application based on these questions. They are for data purposes only, and though all questions are required, please do not hesitate to select ‘Prefer not to say’ if you’re not comfortable sharing this information with us.


Please check our website for course dates and make sure you’re available during the full length of the course. We have Fall and Spring courses available.
