Who can I contact if I have more questions?


Who is eligible?
Eligibility varies from journey to journey. Please visit a specific journey’s “Apply” tab for eligibility requirements.
How do I apply for REALITY?
If you have a referral code from a REALITY alumnus, a friend of REALITY or a REALITY staff member, please visit the “Apply” tab of the journey you are interested in and follow the application link to enter your code to access the application. If you do not have a code, please visit the “Apply” tab of the journey you are interested in and request a code.
I have a referral code; does that mean I’m automatically accepted?
A referral code does not mean you are automatically accepted. A referral code gives you access to the application and your acceptance to a REALITY journey is based on the strength of your application.
Can I apply for more than one REALITY experience?
If I do not get accepted, can I apply again next year?
If you are not accepted to a specific journey, you can apply again next year.
I’ve been waitlisted. What should I do?
While we understand that it is difficult to make arrangements for a potential last-minute acceptance, we do accept participants on the waitlist if spots become available.
I’m interested in a journey that’s already passed. How can I express my interest for next year?
If applications have closed for the journey that you are interested in, please check back after fall applications close in mid-April when the interest form is updated for 2018.
