A Zoom interview is required for ALL students in order to assess oral language ability and student character.

Confirm Your Place

If the applicant is accepted, the $4,300 enrollment deposit, required housing application/forms, and terms and conditions must be submitted according to the deadlines provided on our accepted student website. Once the enrollment and registration fee deposits have been received, the I-20 (student visa form) is issued.

Fairmont housing details will be provided approximately 30 days before arrival, provided the visa has been obtained and the enrollment deposit has been received.
