Application Process

Summer Engineering Academies




There are three steps to our enrollment process:

  1. Application
  2. Admittance
  3. Registration

Most participants will be admitted during one of two lotteries, the Early Bird Lottery and the regular Lottery.  After the lotteries have passed, sessions will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  All sessions are open until filled.  Once a session is filled, a wait list for each session/week will be maintained in case of cancellations. 


  • Early Bird Lottery Deadline: March 5 
  • Lottery Application Deadline: April 25
  • Lottery results available: May 1
  • Registration and Fee deadline: May 15
  1. Application

    Apply Now

    Please create a parent account to begin the application process.

    Both paper and web-based applications will be accepted. During the application process, you will be asked to rank the topics you are interested in, so please read the session descriptions.

    Our online Registration System was designed by one of our former staff members, Computer Science major Zak Stone and his team.  This system will allow you to log in, add multiple children, and change their session preferences up until the Lottery Deadline.

    Within five business days of completing the application, you will receive an Application Confirmation Email to verify their current session preferences. If you do not receive an application confirmation email within five business days of completing the application, please contact the Summer Engineering Academies at

  2. Admittance

    You will be notified of your participant’s assigned session(s) via email.  In most cases, this will follow the lottery.

    Once your application has been processed, you will receive an Admissions Email identifying the session(s) into which your child has been admitted. Applicants are limited to placement in a maximum of 2 sessions and one waitlist.

    If admitted during the Early-Bird Lottery, your child will be accepted into only one session, but will be automatically re-entered into the full Lottery.  During the full Lottery, applicants will automatically be placed into no more than two sessions and on one waitlists.

  3. Registration

    Your Admissions Email will contain instructions and links for completing your registration. A complete registration consists of the registration form, payment, and two signed releases. The releases will be completed through DocuSign.  If you are unable to complete the registration or pay the fee online, please contact us at

    Once we have received all your forms and payment, you will receive an Enrollment Email to confirm your enrollment.

    Several days before the start of your session, you will also receive a Pre-Session Email with directions, parking information, and schedule information.
