Selection Process

The student selection process has several steps:

  • Registration Review Process - After students successfully complete the online registration, the application will be reviewed by the GenCyber selection committee which consists of Augusta University Faculty and Staff.  All acceptance decisions are communicated via email/mail and sent directly to the applicants. 
  • Notification to the Students - Accepted students will receive, via email/mail, an Acceptance Packet by May 30, 2016.  Waitlisted/Rejected students will receive notification via email/mail no later than May 30, 2016.  Augusta University GenCyber Camp Officials are not responsible for delays in enrollment, missed deadlines, or failure to respond within required timelines by students who do not adequately monitor their email/mail or the Camp webpage.
  • Acceptance Process - Students must then accept the invitation by completing the Acceptance Packet.  The Acceptance Packet will be emailed/mailed to the accepted/waitlisted students.  If an accepted student is unable to attend for any reason, the student must inform the Augusta University GenCyber Camp Project Leader, Paula Owens at powens3@augusta.edu  on or before    June 6th. This will allow an invitation to be extended to the next waitlisted student.
