How do the application processes for MIIS and Peace Corps coincide? Do I have to be accepted in the Peace Corps before applying as a PCMI candidate at MIIS?

As long as your Peace Corps application process is under way by the time you arrive on campus at MIIS to attend classes, you are officially considered a PCMI candidate. You are not required to have already been accepted by the Peace Corps. If, however, you arrive on campus to begin classes without having submitted your Peace Corps application, you will not be considered a PCMI candidate.

What are the application requirements? Am I eligible?

If you are an enrolled Monterey Institute student, you may simply fill out the online application and submit it electronically. Additional materials are required of non Monterey Institute students, including a personal statement, resume or CV, and an unofficial transcript.
