Cycle Timeframes

Applicant Portal

The Applicant Portal opens in mid-July and closes in late May.

Admissions by Liaison

You can view new applicants shortly after the new cycle opens in mid-July.

Program Participation Requirements

APPIC requires all programs to designate two contacts at your institution who will receive all communication from APPIC and AAPI, including the application and Admissions by Liaison launch notifications.

Applicant Portal

The first three sections of the AAPI application (i.e., Personal Information, Academic History, and Supporting Information) compose the core application. They contain questions that are commonly asked of applicants across all participating programs, such as an applicant's biographic information, standardized test scores, and experiences. The fourth section of the application is Program Materials, which contains custom instructions, documents, and recommendations for your program.

You can access the AAPI application and AAPI Applicant Help Center to review the applicant experience. You can also create a test application in the Applicant Portal; we recommend creating a new account and adding "test" to your name (e.g., TestJohn TestDoe).

For a general overview of the applicant experience, review the following documents:

You can direct any applicant inquiries related to the application to AAPI Customer Service.
