Information about Your Caltech Application Portal
After you submit your Common Application with the Caltech Member Questions, we will send you a link to your Caltech Application Portal. You may upload additional materials (e.g., a research paper, poster, supplemental information)* through the Portal. Please submit supplemental materials only through your Portal. Once you upload a document, rest assured that we have it. There is no need email it to us after you have uploaded it.
About two weeks after your application deadline, you will be able to see which required application materials we have received. If something is missing, please get it to us immediately. We cannot review incomplete applications. Please note that supplemental items will not appear on your Portal.
*Please note that we neither require nor review art and music supplements. This doesn't mean we aren't interested in your talents beyond STEM! You are still welcome to tell us about your art and music activities in your application.
