Admissions Process

Our Program Offerings

Offered in both virtual and in-person formats, our competencies-based leadership development programs enable you to deepen your knowledge, broaden your skill set, and collaborate with a global network of peers. 

Submitting an Application

Before you submit your application, please be sure you have answered all the questions thoroughly and have printed or saved your application for your records. Your application and all required documents must be received before you will be considered for program admission. While each program has its own distinct application, Some programs require additional supporting materials, so please read the admissions requirements for your selected program thoroughly.


All applications will be acknowledged via email. All application information is strictly confidential. In the unlikely event that you do not receive an email acknowledgment, please contact the Admissions Committee:     Email:


Upon acceptance into a program, you'll receive an electronic invoice from our Finance department that is payable within 30 days of receipt. Please review the payment policies and the steps for cancelling or deferring participation.

Going Through the Admission Process

For most programs, the Admissions Committee meets monthly and admits qualified candidates on a rolling, space-available basis. Some programs have application deadlines, as noted on the program page on our website. For all programs, early application is strongly encouraged. 

In accordance with United States Institute of Leadership and Diplomacy's policy, USILD does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, sex or sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, national or ethnic origin, political beliefs, veteran status, or disability in admission to, access to, treatment in, or employment in its programs and activities.

Improving Your Program Experience

Our Program Delivery team will be your primary point of contact before and during the program. Before your program starts, you will receive a link to the Learning Community, which gives you access to the program, relevant case studies and a detailed program schedule.
