How to Apply

SMDEP Program Sites are completely autonomous in making admissions decisions. The SMDEP National Program Office has established admissions guidelines regarding acceptance procedures for sites and applicants.

To apply to SMDEP, you must submit all of the following materials by the deadline:

  • SMDEP Web Application: Once successfully submitted, your information is immediately available to SMDEP.
  • Transcripts: Processed within 10 business days of receipt at the National Program Office. An admissions decision will not be given until all transcripts are received. Please follow up with your registrar's office to ensure that transcripts arrive by the deadline.
  • Letters of Recommendation: Processed within 10 business days of receipt at the National Program Office.

Late submission of transcripts and recommendations could result in your application not being processed. Please ensure that all of your documents are submitted to the National Program Office on or before the application deadline!

Providing correct and timely information allows us to give your application the attention it deserves.

Please note: Students may attend SMDEP only once. After completing SMDEP, students are encouraged to also take part in other enrichment opportunities.
