CIP is an approved institution that can accept foreign non-US resident students to study on an F1 visa at all current locations. The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) may be required for all international students whose first language is not English.
Admission dates are commonly scheduled to begin during Fall Orientation in August, however, CIP enrolls students on a rolling basis throughout the year when space is available.
If the student and family wish to enroll in a program site that is filled, the student will be placed on a first-come-first-served waiting list.
