Eligibility

Enrollment in 8th–10th Grade Option is limited to students residing outside the United States, students who narrowly missed qualifying for the 7th Grade Talent Search, students who are too old to apply to the 7th Grade Talent Search, and students who missed the enrollment period for Duke TIP's 7th Grade Talent Search. With 8th–10th Grade Option, students take the ACT or SAT on their own and report their scores to Duke TIP as a way to qualify for our educational programs.

Students already enrolled in the 7th Grade Talent Search should not enroll in 8th-10th Grade Option.

Designed for students who missed enrollment for the 7th Grade Talent Search, 8th–10th Grade Option lets students who take the ACT or SAT on their own report their scores to Duke TIP in order to be considered for TIP's summer and academic year programs.
