Submitting Your Deposit
For US Citizens and Permanent Residents

The deposit may be submitted through our online application system or by completing the Credit Card Authorization Form below.
Submitting Your Deposit
For International Students
International students must pay their first semester tuition and fees as part of their student visa process, therefore SIT does not require the $400 deposit payment for international students. International students should review the information concerning student visas and focus their efforts on completing the necessary steps to obtain their I-20 and student visa.

Once you have submitted your enrollment form and deposit payment (US students and permanent residents only), you should begin completing the other necessary forms listed below. Please note that these forms will not be processed until your deposit payment is received or, for international students, until you have completed the required steps to obtain your I-20 form.
