International students requiring visa support from SAIC must register by March 1, 2022. If you are an international student and will need an I-20 and an F-1 visa to participate in the ECPSI program, we encourage you to connect with International Affairs at intaff@saic.edu as soon as possible after you have been registered for the program to avoid any visa delays. 

All students are eligible to apply for merit scholarship. Registration and merit scholarship applications are accepted and processed as space and funds allow. After this priority deadline, SAIC cannot guarantee funding will be available. Learn how to apply for a merit scholarship

Registration and need-based financial aid applications are accepted and processed as space and funds allow. After this deadline, need-based financial aid will be reviewed on a case-by case basis—SAIC cannot guarantee funding will be available after this date. Learn how to apply for need-based financial aid

Note: Need-based financial aid is available to US residents only. International students may apply for a merit scholarship.

The payment deadline is May 2, 2022. If you have not made payment by this date you are at risk of being dropped from your selected courses.

  • If you need to drop a class, all drop requests must be submitted in writing to ecp@saic.edu and include the student's name, ID number, and course information.
  • One hundred percent of the tuition charge, not including the $100 nonrefundable tuition deposit, is refundable if courses are dropped by May 2, 2022.* If a course is dropped after the deadline, no refund will be granted.*

*Note: this date applies for all sessions.
