Application Overview

If you're interested in applying for Year On, here are the things we look for and those we don't. 

Who can apply.

We’re often asked what we look for in prospective Year On fellows. Quite simply, you're eligible to apply to the program if you're:
  • Between the ages of 18 and 23
    Open to experiential learning
  • Willing to work hard

What you won't need.

Your past academic record is not an especially accurate predictor of success in our program. We do not require you to submit:
  • SAT or ACT scores
  • High School or College Transcripts
  • Letter of Recommendation

After you've been accepted:

1. Upon notification of your admission to the program, you’ll submit a deposit of $2000 to hold your spot in the cohort.

2. When your deposit is received, our Voyage team will reach out with details about each of our Voyage destinations. We’ll set up time with you to chat by phone and register you for Voyage travel. Since spots in each Voyage location are assigned on a space available basis, it is to the participant’s advantage to submit the deposit as soon as possible. The deposit is non-refundable.

3. Final payment is due September 1, 2017.

4. The program begins with your arrival at your Voyage destination on October 8, 2017.

UnCollege does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status in any of its activities or operations.

Year on

Our newest program, Year On, offers year-long and semester-long learning experience that gives high school graduates the skills they need to succeed wherever their journey takes them.

Financial Assistance for the Gap Year Program

Our fellows come from all types of socio-economic backgrounds, and we aim to ensure access for all of them. Consideration for financial assistance with our program costs starts with a conversation. Many of our applicants are U.S. residents who have already filed the FAFSA form as part of their college application process. If you’ve received the results of the FAFSA (known as the Student Aid Report), we’re happy to use it in our considerations for financial assistance. International applicants and those who did not file the FAFSA may submit a statement describing their financial circumstances. Submissions can be made at admissions@yearon.com.
