Dates and Deadlines

The Mathcamp application deadline for this summer will be March 12, 2020. 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 2020 January 10
Deadline for Application for Admission March 12
Deadline for Financial Aid Application March 12
Admissions and Financial Aid Decisions Announced April 15
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

Due to the large number of candidates, we are no longer accepting late applications as part of our system. We will begin reviewing applications immediately following the deadline. Contact us if your circumstances are unusual and you wish to discuss.
