Key Plus-Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately, no.  The LEADS track is only available to students living on the 4th floor of Braiden.  The Key Plus Courses track is the only option for students living off campus or for students who are not living on the 4th floor of Braiden.  Learn more about the Key Plus Courses track and Key Plus classes here.

First, you must attend one of the Key Plus Info sessions.  At the info session you will be given access to the Key Plus application.  The application includes several questions that require thoughtful essay responses.  All applicants will hear about the status of their application 2 weeks after the application deadline.  For a list of info sessions check out the How do I apply for Key Plus page.

Since Key Plus is an honorary program, we are looking for thoughtful responses to each of the application questions. When responding to each question, try to respond with at least a paragraph or more for each question.  We are looking to get to know you and to get a good understanding of why you want to join Key Plus, so give the questions a good amount of thought and be honest.
