Important Dates

While we admit all three semesters (spring/summer/fall) to this program, the majority of the courses are offered during the summer session.

The deadlines for each semester are as follows:

Summer: June 1

Fall: August 1

Spring: January 1*

*We often offer courses during the winter intersession. Winter applications are due no later than December 1.

In addition, as part of the certificate program, there is an option for Russian study abroad. This takes place for 6 weeks during the summer and includes two courses for the certificate, Russian language learning, and a paid scholarship for meals, travel, and lodging. This study aboard program is only available to US citizens as it is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE). Students should apply to this exchange separately once admitted into a degree program (or if already in a degree program) via the Study Abroad application system
