Admission Process

Applications are reviewed by CRP staff. Admission and continued admission in the Collegiate Recovery Program and The Recovery Nest are at the discretion of the CRP staff. Once your application is received and reviewed, chosen applicants will be contacted to schedule an admissions interview. All potential CRP student members must complete an admission interview via SKYPE or in person.

All accepted applicants must agree and sign a recovery commitment for admission into the program. This commitment is available to review before the interview and admissions process.

We will not discriminate based on race, color, sex, religion, creed, age, marital status, national origin, sexual orientation, veteran's status or the presence of any physical, sensory or mental disability. We will be basing all admittance and continued involvement decisions on your ability to succeed and contribute to the CRP and/or Recovery Nest.

We encourage diversity and inclusion among all of our students.
