Application Process

1. Complete the Online Application

To start the application process, please complete our online application.

2. Submit Required Documents

In addition to the online application, you will need to submit the following documents to complete the application process:

  • TRANSCRIPTS: Official transcript(s) from each college/university or professional school you attended.  Student-issued (unofficial) copies may suffice, pending receipt of the official transcripts.
  • LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION: Two letters of recommendation are required.  They can be from a college/university professor, an employer, a physician who has supervised you, etc. Letters of recommendation can be mailed to our office, uploaded right into your candidate profile on our Student Management System (SMS), or emailed directly to your Admissions Representative. Your references can opt to use our “Letter of Recommendation” form if they prefer.

3. Interview

Once all documents have been submitted, an interview is scheduled. These are usually done via Skype or phone, as the Deans are located in Aruba. Within two to three weeks of the interview, the student will know if they have been accepted.


You can upload your documents right into the online application, with the exception of all official transcripts.  If you choose to send your application documents in the mail, please direct them to the following address:
