Process and Timeline for Accepting New Clients

Process and Timeline for Accepting New Clients

Our advisory council collects, sorts, and ranks the applications, and staff will notify clients following the ranking meetings (held annually in June/July for the fall semester and October/November for the spring semester.)

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, so apply any time. However, keep in mind that the majority of new projects are accepted at predictable times since students work on a semesterly schedule.

For Fall Semester:

  • June/July: Advisory Council sorts and ranks applications collected since the previous December. Clients notified.
  • Late August: Students Return for fall, begin training. Projects begin either immediately or within four weeks, depending on project complexity. Team Leads contact clients.

For Spring Semester:

  • Oct/Nov: Advisory Council sorts and ranks applications collected since the previous July. Clients notified.
  • Early January: Students Return for spring, begin training. Projects begin either immediately or within four weeks, depending on project complexity. Team Leads contact clients. Continuing projects with continuing Team Leads will resume just after winter break ends.

 

For Summer:

We have fewer students in summer, so we rarely add new clients during the summer. We reserve it primarily to finish off remaining project tasks, client trainings, and recalibrate processes.
