Application Process

UAA Summer Engineering Academies Logo




There are three steps to our enrollment process:

  1. Application
  2. Admittance
  3. Registration

Most participants will be admitted during one of the lotteries.  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 "waitlist" for each session/week will be maintained in case of cancellations. 


  • Early Bird Lottery Deadline: 11:59pm on March 9th
  • Lottery Application Deadline: 11:59pm on April 25th
  • Lottery results available: April 30th
  • Registration and Fee deadline: May 15th

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 be sure 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 three business days of completing the application, please contact the Summer Engineering Academies at



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.



Your admissions email will contain instructions and links for completing your registration. A complete registration consists of registration, 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.
