Application Process and Timeline

Students who want to attend UCDC should apply to the program the semester prior to the one they want to be in DC.  Applications for Fall participation are due in late February and applications for Spring participation are due in late September.  It is highly recommended that students plan for their UCDC semester early in their academic careers by meeting with a College or major advisor to discuss how UCDC fits into their academic plan.  Fill out the UCDC Interest Form to receive timely information about UCDC, such as deadlines, internships, and fellowships.  

The link to the current online application form can be found under the Instructions tab.
