Information and Updates for the Iona Community on Coronavirus

Applying to CAP

You must apply to both the College and CAP in order to be considered for admission into the program.

Deadline to submit an application to CAP is May 1.

Applicants who have been admitted to the College and have submitted all necessary application materials and supporting documentation will be among the first group considered.

After a completed application has been received, the CAP Admissions Committee will review the materials and invite the most qualified candidates for an interview. Students who are invited for an interview are usually notified of the Committee’s decision no later than two weeks after being interviewed.

Due to the limited number of spaces offered in the program, we highly encourage that you submit your CAP application at the same time as your Iona College application.

All applications and supporting documents must be submitted online.
