In order to apply to a DOC program, you must complete the online DOC program application, found through myNEU or the GEO website, which includes responses to the essay questions.

As part of the online application, you are required to submit a $500 non-refundable deposit that will be applied to the full cost of your program. Please note that until the deposit is received, your application is incomplete.


Each faculty member may conduct individual interviews for candidates to their dialogue. They are generally 15 minutes in length and occur at the discretion of the faculty.


Those who are accepted will immediately be placed into the program. You will be notified via email by the faculty leader as well as by GEO. There is no opportunity for you to refuse acceptance—if you wish to do so, you must formally withdraw and be responsible for the financial penalties. Please see the withdrawal policy for more details.


The faculty leader will grade you and will post any and all grades with the Registrar. Please direct any concerns over grading to your faculty leader.
