Application & Deadlines

Our aim to create a cadre of professionals who will gain from the program, and from each other as they master the program content, interact with our expert faculty, and share their experiences, ideas, and perspectives. With this in mind, the application process is designed to allow you to examine and share your thinking related to the field, your career objectives, and personal development.


The online application is available through the USC Continuing Education website. You will be asked to provide basic information, include your resume/curriculum vitae (CV), and to respond to a personal statement prompt (500 words or less). You are also asked to provide the name and e-mail address of one colleague, mentor, or supervisor who will submit a letter of recommendation on your behalf.

  • Please note that to apply, you must first click on the button “ADD TO CART.”
  • There is NO charge for checking-out the course at this stage, and you will be directed to the application.
  • You will only be charged tuition after your application has been reviewed, you have been notified of the decision, and have accepted all terms and conditions.


Applications will be accepted until August 31, 2014. Participants will be notified within 3 weeks of the receipt of the application.


The full tuition is $10,000. A non-refundable $500 tuition deposit is required within 2 weeks of acceptance to guarantee your place in the program. 100% of the deposit is applied to tuition, and the balance of the tuition must be received by September 1, 2014.

Participants who are accepted after September 1 must pay their entire tuition by the first day of the course, September 29, 2014, unless otherwise arranged.
