The Crimson Access Opportunity (CAO) is a program for ambitious, high-achieving students who demonstrate financial need. The program will offer Crimson admissions consulting services completely free of charge to a select group of students from around the world (note: the program will not cover any university costs, such as application or testing fees, beyond admissions support).
The program supports American and international students who are applying to universities in the US and intend to start university as first-year students in Aug, 2024. We support students who are able to contribute less than 30,000 USD/year towards their education. Please refer to our website for more information.
Before answering any of the application questions, please read all the instructions and questions carefully. When approaching every question, please answer them as informatively, clearly, and honestly as possible. Please note that we take honesty very seriously at Crimson; you will be asked to agree to the CAO honor code before submitting the application. Also, carefully check all the information you have provided before submitting as you will not be able to change your answers after submitting the application form. Finally, you will be able to re-use a lot of your answers on this form in your actual college applications - put as much effort into them as you can!
