LEHMAN Michigan Technological University DR. JOHN MATLOCK University of Michigan

2013 has been an interesting year here at DAPCEP. To be a non-profit organization in Southeast Michigan is TOUGH!! The philantropic and corporate landscape of Detroit continues to shift to meet the enourmous educational, social and structual challenges we face as a community. Like every family, we are adapting to the economic, social and fiscal realities we face today and planning for the future. Because of changes in regional philanthropy, economic conditions and the need for increased organizational self-reliance, the DAPCEP Board of Directors has requested the staff implement an individual application fee for DAPCEP courses. The Board has also requested that systems are put in place to discretely support those who have an interest in DAPCEP but lack the financial resources to participate. As a result, we are implementing an application fee of: $25 per child with a maximum fee of $100 per family for Saturday Programs beginning Fall 2013. Some of you may be shocked by this move; others may feel this is long overdue. This fall, DAPCEP will INVEST over $200 per student in educational programming for young people. The $25 per student application is an incredible value for the opportunities and resources DAPCEP. Your participation in DAPCEP is an investment in your child’s future. We believe that DAPCEP is making a difference in the lives of young people through our educational programming, motivation and exposure. Thank you for allowing us to share these opportunities with you. Welcome to DAPCEP!! Sincerely,

MISSION The mission of DAPCEP is to increase the number of historically underrepresented students who are motivated and prepared academically to pursue degrees leading to careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) related fields through K-12 supplemental educational programming. We consider all applicants without regard to residence or legally protected status. Please understand that due to the limitations of space in each DAPCEP program, admission decisions of the Program Directors are final.

ADMISSIONS POLICY The DAPCEP admission is designed to maximize fairness and consideration of all eligible applicants. Each Program Director or selection committee seeks to have a qualified, balanced, broad base of students, each of whom must meet the eligibility requirements for the desired program. Typically, each program has more applicants than it has allotted spaces. While every consideration is given to maximize total enrollment with as many students as possible receiving their first selection, the numerical realities of the program and its funding will result in some students not getting their desired program or not even admitted to DAPCEP at all. We encourage all students who are not admitted to reapply during the next enrollment period.

Accepted students will be invited to a mandatory orientation on October 12, 2013. If your student is not accepted into DAPCEP, a $25 credit voucher will be included with the student’s non-accept letter that can be used toward the next DAPCEP session. Booklet Course and payment information can be found in the course booklet which can be viewed online and is also available for pickup at the DAPCEP office. The course booklet contains a detailed list of courses (date, time, description and location).

Directions to Complete the Application Online 1. Go to our website www.dapcep.org and click “Apply to DAPCEP”. 2. You will need to create a login with a username and password. The password must be at least six characters with letters and numbers, no symbols. It is recommended that you use a parents’ email address that is checked regularly. The username and password will be immediately sent to this email address so that you can save this information. Then, establish a security question. 3. Enter the students contact information and click “Create User”. 4. Continue to populate all fields and click “Save” at the end of each section. 5. Answer the IRB survey questions. 6.

Once you establish a new user name and password, this information will be emailed to the address listed during the online registration. Save this email or the user name and password information in a safe place. 9. Failure to complete registration for each student using their own user name and password, will merge student records.

If the student is accepted, you will receive an official letter of acceptance and an invitation to the mandatory orientation from the DAPCEP Office. We also offer financial assistance of as much as a 50% discount on the $25 per child fee for families who meet our criteria.
