The Adirondack Semester is offered in both fall or spring semesters and students from all colleges and universities are invited to apply.
Students majoring in the sciences, business/entrepreneurship, engineering and liberal arts and humanities are encouraged to apply. Students must be in good academic standing with their home department and have preferably completed at least one course in biology and/or chemistry.
Applications are usually competitive (though occasionally we are able to accept most everyone, so always apply!). Acceptance is determined by a committee and based upon information in your application, recommendations, your essay, seniority, fit, disciplinary diversity, background, GPA, and extra-curriculars.
