The Innovation Advancement Program invites interested undergraduate students from the Barrett, The Honors College and graduate students from the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, W.P Carey School of Business, Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering, and College of Liberal Arts and Sciences to contact Suzanne Lynn, Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The IAP is offered in the spring and fall semesters, as well as during summer session, and qualified students are invited to participate based on the following criteria (in no particular order):
IAP Fact Sheet
IAP Presentation for Students
Q: How do I submit my application?
A: Electronic versions of the application and supporting documents are strongly recommended. Just e-mail the application and documents to email@example.com.
Q: What is the full process that I will go through before being accepted?
A: The IAP operates on an apply, interview, accept/decline system. After sending in an application, students are asked to attend an interview (details will be provided once your application is received) IAP faculty and/or staff. After all interviews are complete, the faculty/staff will review the applicant pool and send an invitation or regret letter to each applicant, usually within a week of the interviews ending.
Q: The IAP application time frame isn't aligned with the usual registration dates. I need to register for next semester's classes before I'll know if I'm accepted into the program.
A: Unfortunately, the multi-disciplinary nature of the program doesn't always allow the full application process to be completed before registration starts. It is recommended that you sign up for a full course load as if you were not participating in the IAP with plans to drop one or more courses if you are accepted into the program.
Q: I cannot make the scheduled lunch meetings. Can I still participate?
A: No. The lunch meetings are an important part of the course and are required.
Q: How many total credits should I take if I'm accepted into the program?
A: The IAP is a time intensive course. More than 15 total credit hours are not recommended for students participating in the program. In the past, some Honors College students taking 18 hours and law students taking 16 hours have been successful in the program, but students planning to take more than 15 total credits should discuss this plan with IAP Faculty during the application process.
Q: Can I volunteer my time instead of taking the course for credit?
A: No, all students must take the course for credit.
