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.

If you have any difficulty accessing the online application system, you may also send a personal letter to that indicates you wish to enroll in the program, and include your personal and professional reasons for doing so, as well as an attached resume or CV, by September 15.  We will then do any needed follow-up directly with you.


Applications will be accepted until September 15, 2014. Participants will be notified within 3 weeks of the receipt of the application.


Tuition for the program is $10,000 and is payable by the first day of the course, September 29, 2014, unless otherwise arranged. A three-part payment plan is available upon request.
