Mathcamp: Deadlines

Dates and Deadlines

Mathcamp will offer a unified calendar for all applicants in 2019. (Some of you might remember that in past years, we've offered an early application cycle and a regular admissions season; to simplify, we have moved to one date.)

The Mathcamp application deadline for this summer will be March 15, 2019. All components of the application must be received by that date, including the Qualifying Quiz, personal essay, and both letters of recommendation. Candidates who wish to be considered for financial aid should also submit the completed financial aid application by that date.

The full calendar for the admissions season is as follows:

Event Date
Application Opens for 2019 January 15
Deadline for Application for Admission March 15
Deadline for Financial Aid Application March 15
Admissions and Financial Aid Decisions Announced April 17
Deadline for Admitted Students to Register May 15

All materials must be submitted by 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time (UTC -5) on the date of the deadline. Be sure to allow sufficient time for your application to be complete by the deadline.

(There is no longer an apply-by-mail option; everything is submitted electronically. Pro tip: you'll find that upload speeds on our website are zippier when it's not five minutes before the deadline.)

Waitlisted Applicants

On decision day, we will place a small number of applicants on the waitlist. As places become available, we will admit waitlisted applicants in late April and May. Each applicant's final admissions decision will be determined no later than May 25.

Late Applications

Late applications will be considered only for spots on the waitlist, and we will continue to review applications until April 27, 2019. Due to the large number of applications, we admit very few (if any) late applicants.
