Admission to STEP is selective and based primarily on a student's academic record.  Interested students must complete and submit a program application by the deadline.  Report cards, personal statements, and income verification documents ( for students claiming eligibility on the basis of economic factors) are important components of the application.  Incomplete applications cannot be considered.
