Apply for fall 2022

The application for fall 2022 is due by July 31, 2022


To apply you must be at least 18 years old, income-eligible, and not already have a bachelor’s or associate’s degree. If you do not fulfill these requirements, but still believe you should qualify for this program, please describe your special circumstances and turn in an application regardless. A high school diploma or GED is not required.

Income eligibility is determined by federal poverty guidelines. Applicants must be at 150% of the federal guideline for their family size (see chart to determine eligibility).

Mock Class Session

After submitting the application form, you will be invited to attend a mock class online, which will introduce you to what an Odyssey class will look like. The fall 2022 mock class sessions will be held in late July/early August. Attendance at one of these sessions is a required part of your application to the Odyssey Project.

Because space is limited, submitting an application does not guarantee admission to the program. If you have any questions about this form, please call (217) 300-3888.
