Admissions Policies

Deferral Policy

The INI does not allow admission deferrals. Each year applicants are reviewed and ranked with the current applicant pool. Students are accepted for admission into the program for a particular academic year and may not defer admission.

Applicant's Responsibility

An application may remain “incomplete” if required documents are not uploaded or submitted in the manner requested in the application instructions.

An application may remain "Incomplete" if required documents are not received in the INI office or are not submitted in the proper manner. Applications not completed by the posted deadlines will remain incomplete.

The admissions staff makes every effort to assist applicants in completing their submission; however, the INI does not accept responsibility for documents that are missing or are improperly submitted resulting in an application remaining incomplete and unreviewed.

Confidentiality of Communications

All information provided to students as a result of their application including subsequent correspondence is considered confidential and should not be communicated to other applicants. Please note that applicants are expected to comply with the confidentiality requirement as a condition of admission.
