In 2024, APICDA will introduce a streamlined online application submission system via the user-friendly portal, Submittable. While some programs are currently transitioning to online applications, others still require paper submissions. This variance reflects the ongoing effort to ensure a seamless experience for applicants, as creating and thoroughly troubleshooting online applications takes time. Our goal is to create a convenient and efficient process for the applicant.
