Student Application

Applications are no longer being accepted for PROMYS 2016.
The application deadline was April 1.

Admissions decisions will be sent by email by the first week in May. 


PROMYS is a program for pre-college students who will be at least 15 years old by the first day of the program. Students from throughout the United States participate as well as many international students.

Admissions decisions are based on the following criteria: applicants' solutions to a set of challenging problems, teacher recommendations, high school transcripts, and students' responses explaining their interest in the program.

Students who are 16 or older and ordinarily resident in Europe are also eligible to apply separately to PROMYS Europe at the University of Oxford in England. PROMYS Europe is a partnership between PROMYS and the Mathematical Institute and Wadham College at the University of Oxford, and the Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI).
