The application takes approximately 20-30 minutes, and should be completed by the student, not a parent or guardian. The application is composed of seven mandatory sections or "tasks." Once you mark a task as complete, you will not be able to change your answers - so read the questions carefully! Each task is saved after it's completed, so if necessary, students can pause and return to complete their application at a later time.
To access the application (and later on, the registration forms), students will first register for an account by selecting "REGISTER" on the application homepage. If possible, please use a personal email address (e.g. gmail or yahoo) to register, rather than a school-issued, or parent's email address.
Once you register, you'll need to verify your email address before you can continue with the application. Once you've verified your email address, you can get started!
This tutorial video provides additional instructions on how to fill out the application.
The application period is divided into two phases:
Phase One (our Early Acceptance Round), will take place from mid-January through February 15, 2019. Phase One applicants will be notified of their acceptance status by mid-March, 2019.
Phase Two (Regular Acceptance) of the application period will take place from mid-February through March 15, 2019. Phase Two applicants will be notified of their acceptance status by mid-April, 2019.
If students are interested in applying for the Summer Stipend Award, they may do so in the supplemental section at the end of the main application. The supplemental Summer Stipend Award application has the same deadlines as the Summer Immersion Program application.
