Once you complete your application for admission and upon acceptance, you will be asked to submit, via the Application Portal, your confirmation materials, including a signed Conditions of Participation form to confirm participation in your program, Assumption of Risk form, Health Forms, and your passport copy, if you have not already. If you do not have a passport that is valid through February 2022, please apply for one immediately.
