• from Garrett Margliotti

Many Dialogue of Civilizations still accepting applications!!  If a program is no longer accepting applications, it will have a "closed" flag on its program page.  All extended DOC program  applications will close on February 20th, 2017.


  • What does priority deadline mean? 
    • All students that apply by the priority deadline will be considered for admission, as all dialogues remain open until the priority deadline. After the priority deadline, applications are reviewed on a rolling basis until the program fills. Programs are subject to close anytime between the priority deadline and the application deadline when a program receives the maximum number of students.
  • What does non-refundable deposit mean?
    • Students must pay a $500 non-refundable deposit for their application to be considered complete.  If a student is not accepted into their Dialogue, they will receive their $500 back.  If a student is accepted into a Dialogue of Civilizations program but then decide to withdraw, they will be subject to the withdrawal policy outlined here:
  • Can I still apply for a Dialogue of Civilizations program?
