Is there an application fee?

There is a $50 non-refundable application fee due at the time of submission. The fee can waived if you have a waiver code. Codes are given out at virtual information sessions, conference presentations, open houses, and as part of any professional learning community with Mathematics Leadership Programs. To inquire about waiver codes, email Sarah at

Do I have to take an entrance exam?

No. We do not require applicants to take any entrance exam when applying for our program.

When will I find out if I’m accepted?

Completed applications are reviewed at the end of each month beginning in January and are accepted on a rolling basis until the program is full. Acceptance letters will be sent as applications are approved.

If I’m accepted and decline, is there a fee?

No. When you are accepted you are asked to either make a deposit or decline. If you decline, you are not asked to pay a fee. However, if you make a deposit to secure your spot in the program and decide later to withdraw, you will lose your deposit.

Can I defer for another year?

You may certainly defer for one year, but we require a deposit to secure your acceptance into the program. When the application process for the next session opens, you do not need to reapply. However, if you do not submit a deposit, you will have to reapply during the next application cycle.

Who do I contact if I have additional questions?

Our assistant director, Sarah Bent, will be happy to answer your questions. You can email her at or call (413) 374-6595.
