When can I expect to hear back about my UX Academy application?

Application decision timeline

You can expect to hear back from the Admissions team within 4 business days of submitting your application. Make sure to add Designlab to your email contacts to avoid missing any important updates. (If you don't see any communication from us, try checking your spam or promotions folders.) 


Iteration requests

Occasionally, an applicant will receive a request for an iteration on their work. This doesn’t mean you’ve produced bad work or that you're on track to be rejected from the program. Being asked to iterate means you're close to meeting requirements for admissions, but that your project work or design thinking may just need a bit more fine-tuning in order to qualify for acceptance. 

If you do receive a request for an iteration, please make sure to submit it within 7 days of the time you received the request. Otherwise, your application will be cancelled and you'll need to re-apply for a future cohort of UX Academy.


Applying to a future cohort

Applicants may only apply to a given cohort once. If you're unable to gain entry into UX Academy thereafter, you're welcome to apply again next month! Priority in each cohort will be given to first-time applicants. You can read this article to learn more about re-applying to UX Academy.
