Freshman Application for the STEPP program

STOP! Before you download the application forms, please read these important instructions:

  • When you click on the application link, it should open in a new browser window.
  • In the new window, save the form as a PDF file to your computer. Depending on your browser, you may need to do this by right-clicking on the form and selecting "Save as" or by clicking the "save" icon or "download" icon in a toolbar.
  • Exit the browser and open the PDF file in Adobe Reader. From here, you will be able to either print the blank forms or to type in your responses before printing the completed forms.
  • Make sure that you open the saved PDF file in Adobe Reader before entering your information. Please do NOT type in your responses on the form while it is in the internet browser, and do not print the blank (or completed) forms directly from the browser window. Some of the form fields will not function properly in the browser, and others will not print correctly from the browser. (If you need to download the free Adobe Reader software, use the link at the bottom of this page.)

Please read the Helpful Tips for STEPP Program Applicants before starting your application.
