Biotech Institute Application
 
Thank you for your interest in BTI. The application deadline for the Class of 2023 cohort has passed.

Applicants will be called in for a small-group informational meeting during one of their classes on February 25 or March 3, 2020. This is a chance for you to ask any questions you may have and for us to get to know you. 
 
Prerequisite for applying to BTI: 
 
9th grade students who apply to the program must be enrolled in Biology and Algebra. To be eligible to enroll in the program, students must earn a C- or higher in these courses each semester. 
 
How we select our students:
 
The BTI staff assesses students holistically when deciding who to accept into the program. We are looking for students who have a strong interest in science as demonstrated by their application. We are also looking for students who are highly engaged in class as demonstrated by their grades and attendance records.
 
Commitment to the program:
 

Campus-wide, schedule changes will not be permitted after mid-May; therefore, students who accept our invitation to enroll in BTI will not be able to drop the program over the summer or in August when we return. Additionally, students who join the program are making a minimum of a one-year commitment.

Frequently Asked Questions:
 
Answers to most questions can be found on our FAQs page. If you have a question that we haven't addressed there, please contact Ms. Gold, sgold@seq.org or Ms. Abdilla, jabdilla@seq.org, the co-directors of the program.
