We welcome students up until the very last minute, provided we have space and we can make arrangements for them to join the program after the deadline. Contact the MLSA office before sending your application. Applications received are accepted on a rolling basis until the program is filled.

Students enrolling after the deadline must send full payment with the applications, plus the $200 late fee.
