How to Apply
Applying for SAE programs is a straightforward process involving only a few simple steps. An admissions representative will guide you through the process and identify the best course options for you. We have multiple start dates throughout the year and flexible study options to suit your schedule.
Prospective students may enroll in person or by mail. Those registering by mail should contact the SAE Institute campus of intended enrollment regarding available openings and the start date for the program before returning a completed Application for Admission. Those enrolling in person may make an appointment to visit the SAE Institute campus of intended enrollment during regular office hours. Out-of-area prospective students must contact the SAE Institute of intended enrollment in order to submit an Application for Admission and the Enrollment Packet by mail.
