How long is the selection process or how long will it take before I find out the status of my application?

For Corps Members: Our goal is to complete the Corps Member selection process within two months of receiving the application. This means that two months after we receive an application, the applicant should know if he or she has been accepted, placed on the waitlist or not accepted. However, there are many instances when it may take longer than two months.

For Team Leaders: The Team Leader selection process is handled at the campus level. Campuses extend offers simultaneously on the designated offer dates for their program cycle.  This means that about one month after the application deadline, the applicant should know whether he or she has been selected for a position or as an alternate.

Note: Dates in the application and selection process are subject to change.  Please refer to My AmeriCorps for accurate application deadlines or contact us at if you have any questions.
