Application checklist

Ready to apply? At the Sever Institute, we strive to make the process as streamlined as possible. Our system is designed with applicants in mind and walks you through the steps necessary to complete your online application, including the submission (via upload) of the following items:

  • Transcripts: All transcripts (official or unofficial) must be in English and contain the applicant's name, institution and all grades received. Please include your entire academic history for any undergraduate and graduate work.
  • Three letters of recommendation: In the application, enter the names and email addresses of three recommendation providers. When you save your application, an automated email is sent to these individuals requesting the recommendation. (Please note that we cannot accept paper and email recommendations.) Recommendations must be posted by the published deadline for final application submission.
  • Statement of Purpose: The Statement of Purpose should be a brief document explaining your goals and ambitions.
  • Resume: Upload your current resume or curriculum vitae in the section immediately following the Statement of Purpose.
  • $75 application fee: Fees are payable by credit card or electronic check issued from a U.S. banking institution.
