Course Guarantee Dates


Some classes fill very quickly. We therefore recommend that students apply as early as possible. Students whose applications are postmarked on or before each program's course guarantee date, and who are accepted into the program, will be guaranteed their first choice of courses, subject to enrollment minima. The course guarantee dates for each program are as follows:

The Oxford Spring Seminar: January 4, 2019
The Oxford Tradition: January 11, 2019
The Cambridge Tradition: January 18, 2019
US, France, Spain: January 25, 2019
The Ox/Cam Prep Programs: February 1, 2019
The NYC and Oxford Seminars: April 12, 2019

Please note: These dates are not admission deadlines. We accept applications on a rolling basis until the program is full.

Students who cannot be placed into their first choice Major or Minor/Workshop will automatically be placed in their second or third choice, subject to the availability of that course, and also placed on the waiting list for their first choice. If wait-listed for a class, the student will be notified as soon as a space becomes available. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment levels, students will be notified immediately and placed in their second choice. Students who wish to change courses may do so, in writing, to our New York office, up until Friday February 15, 2019 for the Spring Seminar and Friday May 24, 2019 for the summer programs.
