Apply to DAPCEP

The DAPCEP admissions policy is designed to maximize fairness and consideration of all eligible applicants.  Each program director or selection committee seeks to have a qualified, balanced, broad base of students, each of whom must meet the eligibility requirements for the desired program.  Typically, each program has more applicants than it has allotted spaces. While every consideration is given to maximize total enrollment with as many students as possible receiving their first selection, the numerical realities of the program and its funding will result in some students not getting their desired program or not even admitted to DAPCEP at all.

We encourage all students who are not admitted to reapply during the next enrollment period


The application must be signed on pages 2, 3 and 6 and stapled with a report card for students in grades 4 – 8 and a transcript for students in grades 9 – 12.
