Admissions timeline: the next steps

Are you wondering what’s next in the application process? 

Candidates whose dossiers are being handled by the SAIS Europe Admissions Office are now at the interview stage.

If you have had your interview, we hope you enjoyed it and found it useful.

If you’re waiting to have your interview, here’s a post from January. It offers tips and an important message: “Don’t worry, be happy”.

The deadline to submit financial aid applications is February 15, 2014. Applicants whose dossiers are handled by the SAIS Europe Admissions Office should submit this form with the supporting documents to the email address indicated in the form.

This is a good time to give finances some thought. Students make ends meet in a number of ways. Those who have pondered how to finance their studies are best prepared when it comes time to take a decision.

We will communicate decisions regarding both admission and financial aid in mid-March.

As admitted candidates think about their options, we want to make sure they have as much information on SAIS as possible. To that end, we will be holding in-person events and virtual information sessions.

We will hold two online information sessions: on March 26 at 4 pm Italy time (1500 GMT) and April 8 at 10 am Italy time (0800 GMT).

For those who are near Bologna or Washington, there will be Open House events at both campuses. The event in Bologna will be on April 4. The one in DC will be on April 9, followed by a cocktail reception with Bologna Center alumni on April 10.

Students who receive financial support will be asked to enroll by paying their matriculation fee by April 20, while others will have until May 1 to weigh their options.

For those who need to meet the introductory economics requirement, the deadline to enroll in the Online Principles of Economics course taught by Prof. Dale Larson will be in mid-May.
