We realize that your family's plans are significantly affected by the decisions made by school's such as IST. Once the school has made a decision, we will let you know as soon as possible. Decisions about admission fall into one of four categories:
The Admissions Director or Officer will let you know via email and your family will receive an offer of admission. The offer of admission should be signed and returned as soon as possible. You will also receive student health forms that should be completed and returned as well as information about how to complete the enrolment deposit. The enrolment deposit is to be paid within two weeks of the offer of admission in order to confirm your child's seat.
In some cases, IST is not able to provide a programme that matches an individual student's needs. In such cases, the decision for denying admissions will be provided in the school's response to the application. In case an application is denied, IST refunds a portion of the application fee (USD $350).
If a student is accepted but there are no openings in the appropriate grade level, then the family may choose to have their child's name placed on the waiting list. Admissions from the waiting list are based on the Admission Priority and the Date of Application.
If an applicant has been accepted but chooses to defer his/her enrolment to the following academic year, they are placed on the applicant list for the next year and will need to provide updated and satisfactory academic reports and Confidential School Reports from the preceding school year. For example, if an applicant is accepted for the 2016-17 school year but wishes to defer enrolment until the 2017-18 school year, then they are placed on the applicant list for the 2017-18 year but will need to submit updated reports from the school where the child was enrolled for the 2016-17 year.
