  • General information about the applicant
  • Scholarship essay (if applying)

  • Letters of recommendation
  • Additional information (optional)

Are there application fees?

We do not charge an application fee and only accept a deposit once you commit to join the program.

Do I have to take an entrance exam?

No. We do not require applicants to take any entrance exam when applying for our program.

When will I find out if I’m accepted?

Completed applications are reviewed at the end of each month beginning in January and are accepted on a rolling basis until the program is full. Acceptance letters will be sent as applications are approved.

If I’m accepted and decline, is there a fee?

No. When you are accepted you are asked to either make a deposit or decline. If you decline, you are not asked to pay a fee. However, if you make a deposit to secure your spot in the program and decide later to withdraw, you will lose your deposit.

Can I defer for another year?

You may certainly defer for one year, but we require a deposit to secure your acceptance into the program. When the application process for the next session opens, you do not need to reapply. However, if you do not submit a deposit, you will have to reapply during the next application cycle.

Who do I contact if I have additional questions?

Our director, Mike Flynn, will be happy to answer your questions. You can email him at mflynn@mtholyoke.edu or contact his assistant Janet Paquette to set up an appointment with him. Janet can be reached at jpaquett@mtholyoke.edu or at 413-538-2063.
