- A “please specify” drop-down box appears, and applicants can identify themselves as “City Year” applicants from the drop-down menu.
- Once the applicant submits their application, they will be prompted to pay their application fee in the applicant status page. City Year applicants should NOT pay the application fee. Instead, upload your description of service under “upload materials.”
