MASI Application Information

Application Process 2023-2024

The fee for the 2022-2023 academic year was $6800. There will be an increase to the fee for the 2023-2024 academic year. Once this information is available, we will update our website.

The application window for the 2023-2024 academic year is now open and will close Friday, March 17, 2023. If a student is accepted into MASI, they must pay a deposit to secure their space in the program. The deposit is applied to the overall fee.

MASI fees must be paid in full prior to the start of the academic year. Deadlines for the deposit and the remaining balance will be provided to students if they are offered, and accept, a spot in the program.

Completed applications are reviewed by a committee (i.e.: MASI staff and program partners). Selected applicants will be invited for an interview as completed applications are received. The application and all required components are due by Friday, March 17, 2023 by 11:59pm. Final MASI decisions will be sent out by Friday, April 7, 2023. A completed application includes:

  • MASI Application 2023-2024 PDF
  • $25.00 application fee – Submit payments here. Select “MASI Application Fee (New Applicants Only)”
  • Documentation (Documentation Guidelines can be found in the application)
  • Two Recommendation forms (submitted directly by the recommender) PDF
  • High School/College Transcript (official or unofficial)
  • GMU Acceptance Letter
  • (Optional) MASI Fee-Based Program Assistance Application – Due Friday, April 21, 2023 PDF

If you are unable to access the PDF versions of the application materials, please contact us at

MASI applications may be submitted at the same time as a student’s regular admission application to Mason. However, applications will NOT be reviewed for consideration until a Mason acceptance letter has been received.

If a MASI acceptance letter is received, students will have until May 1, 2023 to commit to the program and pay the required deposit. If the deposit is not paid by May 1, 2023, a student could lose their spot for the upcoming academic year.

After May 1st, if we still have space in the program, we will begin accepting applications on a rolling basis.
