Applying for admission to one of our programs is easy, however in addition to some basic information about yourself, you will need to provide us with some supporting materials including two academic or professional references (contact information only) and a short statement of purpose. Students applying for graduate only or AAC programs will also need to provide an unofficial transcript.
Q: When should I send my application for the best chance of admission?
A: Timing of your application will not have an effect on our admissions decision. However, we have what is called a rolling admission process, which simply means that the window for applications closes when all of the spaces are filled. In order to keep our SLP to student ratio high, all of our programs are capped at 12 students. This means that specific program dates fill quickly, therefore, the earlier you apply the better your chances are to travel on a specific date.
Q: What if I apply but decide not to attend?
A: If you apply and are accepted to one of our programs this does not mean you are obligated to anything. You can request a date change or you can defer your acceptance to another year. Once you pay your deposit to hold your space in the program, that deposit is non-refundable.
Q: What if I apply and get accepted, but I can’t pay my deposit right away. Does that mean I lose my space on the program?
A: Not exactly. If you are accepted, but are not yet able to pay your deposit, you will not lose your space on the program automatically. However, in order to keep our SLP to student ratio high, all of our programs are capped at 12 students. This means that specific program dates fill quickly, therefore, the earlier you secure your space by paying your deposit, the better your chances are of not losing your spot.
Once you are ready to apply and have your application materials ready (personal info, contact information for two references and your statement of purpose), you can go to apply now. The application process should only take about 10 minutes to complete. You will need to pay a $50 application fee. Within 3-5 business days, you will receive an email from Jen@therapyabroad or firstname.lastname@example.org. That’s it! If you have any questions about the program, the application and/or admissions process please don’t hesitate to contact us.
