Applicant's Responsibility

Follow the Application Instructions: In order to successfully complete your application, please follow the instructions and adhere to the deadlines. All requested/required application documents including unofficial transcripts, recommendations, essay/area of interest questions, etc., must be submitted online. An application may be “Incomplete” if the required documents are not provided by the posted deadlines or in the manner requested in the instructions. 

Check Your Application Status: Applicants are able to check the status of their application online on the application status page. INI staff and faculty are not able to provide status updates.

Application Documents

Any documents, including transcripts, or any other materials sent directly to the INI by the applicant without a specific request from the admissions staff will not be considered as part of your application. If additional information is required, the applicant will be notified.

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 un-reviewed. 

All materials submitted become property of the INI.

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.

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.
