We're excited that you are interested in attending Summer Homeshop 2020!
Below are some frequently asked questions that may help you plan for and expedite the registration process.
When is Homeshop registration open?
Registration opens Tuesday, June 2, 2020 and closes Tuesday, June 23, 2020 at 11:59 PM.
How much does it cost to attend Homeshop?
The price of Homeshop is $225.
How do I choose which program to register for?
Select the program that corresponds with your student’s grade for the 2020-2021 school year:
Junior High and Middle School (JAM): For students entering grades 6-8 in the 2020-2021 school year.
Senior High (SLW): For students entering grades 9-12 in the 2020-2021 school year.
Advanced (ALW): For students who are entering 12th grade in the 2020-2021 school year, have previously attended at least one Launch Workshop, and want a more formidable Homeshop experience.
What information will I need if I'm applying for a scholarship?
If you’re applying for a scholarship, we will need to know:
Household Gross Income on your 2019 taxes (estimate, if needed)
Number of dependents included in your 2019 taxes
Can I begin and pause my registration, or will I need to complete it in one session?
Homeshop registration must be completed in one sitting. Once you have begun the process, you will have 30 minutes to fill out the necessary information. Please have the documents listed above ready when you begin registration.
Why does Launch collect demographic information?
We want to provide as diverse a group of students with the Homeshop experience as possible. By collecting demographic information, we can tell if we're meeting our goals. We can also share our demographic information with grant programs and potential donors to help us fundraise to expand our services even further.
Does my medical and/or demographic information affect my Homeshop registration status?
Nope! Homeshop spots go on a first come, first served basis. We collect this information upfront simply because it enables us to plan a better Homeshop experience for the students we expect to attend.
How quickly will Homeshop spots fill?
One benefit of moving our summer offering to an online format is that we can serve more students than ever. As of right now, we don't expect to have to cap the number of registrants.
How do I know if I’ve completed the Homeshop Registration?
You should receive a confirmation email after registering. If you registered but did not receive a confirmation email, please check your spam folder, then contact our registration team at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be able to check on your registration status.
What if I need to change something that was on my registration form?
No problem! Just email email@example.com. We'll get your info updated!
What if I can’t pay the registration price at the time of registering?
Please contact our registration team at firstname.lastname@example.org to create a payment plan or discuss options.
What is the Launch refund policy?
As part of our registration process, a non-refundable $50 deposit is required. If you registered for Homeshop, you can receive a refund of your payment (minus the $50 non-refundable deposit) until June 28, 2020. To cancel a registration, send an email to email@example.com.
If I registered for the wrong program, what should I do?
E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so we can switch your registration to the correct program (JAM, SLW, ALW).
What kinds of scholarships does Launch provide?
All of our scholarships are need-based. They cover either half or the full cost of Homeshop.
How do I apply for a scholarship?
If you would like to apply for financial assistance, please select the Need-Based Scholarship Application option during registration and follow the prompts. You will need to enter information regarding household gross income and number of dependents from your most recent taxes, and/or if there are any special circumstances you would like us to know. Once completed, a spot will automatically be reserved for your student. The scholarship form covers every Homeshop and you do not need to complete more than one form (or submit payment when applying.)
When will I know if I received a scholarship?
Our registration team will respond to your scholarship request within one week of receiving your application. At that time, we'll let you know if you have received a full scholarship, half scholarship, or do not qualify for a Homeshop scholarship.
If you receive a half scholarship or if you do not qualify for a scholarship, we will take this opportunity to discuss payment with you. We can either send you an invoice for the full amount you owe or help you set up a payment plan over several months.
What if I don’t receive a scholarship and can’t afford to attend Homeshop?
Regardless if your student receives a partial or no scholarship, they will have a spot reserved at Homeshop. We are happy to help set-up a payment plan. If your student can no longer attend Homeshop, let us know and we will cancel your registration.
Just contact our registration team at email@example.com and they'll help you with anything you need.
