Early Acceptance Guidelines

Apply Early and Save $100!!! 

Applications will be available online beginning October 1, 2019. Eligible students with completed applications by December 3, 2019 (including paid nonrefundable $100 application fee) will receive acceptance notification by December 14, 2019. They may also receive a $100 discount off the program fee due by March 6, 2020 pending receipt of required forms and documents as indicated in the acceptance notification.  

The $100 discount will only be given after the student submits all required forms by January 24, 2020 and a copy of his/her passport to the TnCIS office by March 30, 2020.  Not submitting all required documents by the deadlines will result in forfeiture of the $100 discount.  

Eligible students:
  • are currently enrolled or accepted at a TnCIS member institution
  • have a minimum 2.0 GPA indicated on an official transcript at the time of application and are in “good standing” – this includes academic and disciplinary matters
  • have completed a minimum of 12 college level credit hours (by the start of the program)
  • will be 18 years old by the start of the program
A complete application consists of:
  • completed online application
  • nonrefundable $100 application fee (paid at your home institution)
  • official transcript sent to TnCIS by the registrar at your institution (see guidelines on the regular application page)
  • online recommendation form completed by a professor (see guidelines on the regular application page)
Application Fee: To qualify for the $100 Early Acceptance discount on the program fee, the application fee must be paid by December 3, 2019. The fee is payable at your home institution. 

Please Note: The application fee is nonrefundable once it is paid for both early and regular application deadlines. The payment deadlines and cancellation policy for early applications and regular applications are the same, as are all other policies.
