Admissions Process

Step 1
Fill out the online application (should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete). Upload an up-to-date résumé, two letters of professional recommendation, and the 500 word essay.

Step 2
Once the Admissions Committee has received your application, a representative will contact you to schedule a WebEx or phone interview. The interview is evaluative and required for all applicants. It is also designed to provide you with more information about the Financial Integrity Master of Arts program to determine whether our program is a good fit for you.

Step 3
An admissions decision will be emailed to you within two weeks of your interview. If accepted into the program, your next step is to pay the enrollment deposit by the deadline of your choice. We strongly encourage deposits by the “preferred decision” deadline to guarantee your spot in the current cohort.

Deposit for inaugural MAFI class in Cleveland, Ohio is $500. Deposit is applied to fall 2016 semester tuition.

September cohort admissions:

Preferred Decision Deposit Deadline: June 30th
Depositing by June 30th guarantees attendance in the upcoming MAFI cohort beginning September 2016.

Regular Decision Deposit Deadline: July 30th
Depositing by July 30th ensures attendance in the upcoming cohort providing space remains available.

If space is not available, the applicant will be waitlisted. If a space does not open the applicant is automatically offered a place in the next cohort.
