Application Process


We carefully examine both past academic performance and professional experience in assessing candidates for our programs. Each year we strive to enroll candidates with strong intellectual and professional backgrounds who will add to the diverse and international community on our campus.

To start the application process, please be sure to take the following steps:

  1. Read the application instructions which outline all materials - including transcripts, recommendations, statements of purpose, and language proficiency assessments.
  2. Review our admission requirements before applying, particularly the foreign language proficiency requirements.
  3. Check the application deadlines. Please submit a full application for a degree program by one of these deadlines to be automatically considered for a Monterey Institute merit scholarship.
  4. When you're ready, check out the online application or download the paper application. You must create a login to complete the online application, and you may return to complete it at any time. When you have reached the end of the online form, you must submit the $50 application fee.
