The Politics Department selects students based on their interest in the program, their academic record, and their ability to work responsibly in an office setting.
First, students fill out the Washington Term application.

After an initial evaluation of the applications, Professor Connelly interviews the applicants.
On the basis of the interview and the application materials, program participants are chosen.
Applicants need not be Politics majors. Prerequisites are completion of either Politics 100, 105, OR 111, and a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
