Preparing to Apply

Academic Transcripts: Your application will require you to upload school transcripts. Please prepare by downloading them from your school or requesting a copy from your school’s administration.

Resume. This is optional. If you have already prepared a resume, we encourage you to upload it in the application. 

Recommendation Letters. All applicants must provide a minimum of two (2) letters of recommendation. When you complete the General Information part of the application, you will receive a link to provide email addresses for the individuals who will be writing your letters of recommendation. These individuals will then be automatically notified of your request. It is recommended that you identify two separate individuals who can support your application and recommend you; it’s also recommended that you first get their approval before you provide their emails on your application link.
