Things to consider when applying

  • Participating in ITA demands a substantial time commitment. Be prepared for a year-round college preparation initiative that entails dedicating time during the academic year and 2 weeks in the summer.
  • Finding a balance is crucial! While program staff wholeheartedly encourage students to be well-rounded individuals, ITA prioritizes ensuring participants excel academically. Being an ITA participant may restrict your involvement in sports, after-school clubs, employment, and community activities.
  • Fulfilling all eligibility criteria for admission to ITA does not automatically guarantee acceptance into the program. Your participation in ITA does not guarantee admission to UW-Madison or any UW-System School or college.
