Step 2 -Interview

Following your application submission, you will receive an email from SiD Associate Director Craig Regester or SiD Program Manager Rose Gorman to schedule an interview. Interviews are informal and are currently conducted in our office (1730 East Quad). 

After the interview, SiD Staff consult to carefully consider of all aspects of the student's application and decide their status in the program. No more than 20 students are accepted into the program each semester. Once the program is full, students who would otherwise be accepted are put on the waitlist, or asked to reapply next year. 

Note: your letter of recommendation does not need to be submitted prior to your interview. However, it does need to be submitted before we can issue a final decision about your admittance to the program.

Step 3 - Pre-Program Requirements

Once a student is accepted into the program, pre-program requirements vary based on which semester they are participating in. All Spring/Summer applicants for the 2024 program are expected to participate in the mandatory SiD Immersion Weekend in Detroit from (March weekend dates TBD).
