PROMYS is a program for pre-college students who will be at least 15 years old by the first day of the program (unfortunately, there is no flexibility on this age requirement). Students from throughout the United States participate as well as many international students.

Admissions decisions will be based on the following criteria: an applicant’s solutions to a set of challenging problems, teacher recommendation, high school transcript, and responses regarding interest in the program.
