Complete step #1:  ISU DI Online Application

This must be completed in one sitting; it's not possible to save your work and continue later.
Everything listed below can be done at the registration site.

  • Submit the application fee electronically - $75 non-refundable fee for each program selected
  • Include your DICAS ID#
  • Upload materials as required by your location (commitment letters, essay, etc)
  • Indicate your location selection and be sure this matches with the other two steps

Our process will generate automatic replies confirming receipt of your materials; therefore, the ISU DI will not reply to any requests for such verification.

In the event you are not selected for entrance in this internship program, application materials will not be returned.

* The online commitment form is set up to automatically send a copy to you and your preceptor.  If you don't see one, check spam and junk mail.  If you still don't see one, include a note in your application that you didn't receive copies and we will follow up as needed.  Your application will still be reviewed.
