ADEA CAAPID Application Instructions



Payment and Fees

On the “Submit Application” tab, the green status bar indicates the completeness of an application to a specific program. Once complete, a blue “Pay and Submit to this Program” button will appear.  Use this button to submit applications (prior to the program deadlines). Applicants can then add programs and pay the application fee by clicking the blue “Pay For My Programs” button at the top of the page. Payment must be posted by 11:59pm EST on the program’s deadline date.

The only edits allowed to an application after submission are contact information, password and security information, letters of evaluation with a status of “new” or “in-progress”, and adding additional Program Designations. All other sections are read-only. Applicants should carefully review their applications prior to submission to avoid errors that cannot be corrected later.

The application fee for ADEA CAAPID depends on the number of programs to which an applicant applies. The fee is $245 for the first program designation and $98 for each additional program designation. Below is a sample fee structure:


One program $245
Two programs $343
Three or more programs For each additional designation, add an additional $98


Payment for the ADEA CAAPID application can be made by credit card or debit card only (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover).  No checks, money, or money orders will be accepted and should not be mailed to ADEA CAAPID.

Most advanced standing programs charge a supplemental application fee in addition to the ADEA CAAPID application fees.  These program-specific supplemental application fees should be paid directly to the program requesting the payment per their instructions.
