The Online System

Your application for Mathcamp (admissions, financial aid, recommendation letters) takes place on our online application system: appsys.mathcamp.org.

Once you have created a username/password for that system, you can continue to use it in the future: if you apply more than once, you can use the same credentials each year.

Your entire application can be submitted through the appsys: you will upload your Qualifying Quiz, paste in your personal essay, and generate requests for your recommendation letters, all through this central system. You can also create a financial aid form that you fill out together with your family or send via the system to a parent/guardian.
