This article will help guide you through navigating your dashboard and applying to Level UP projects.

1. Log in to your Riipen account. If you have not already created an account and joined the Level UP portal, please consult this article for support.

4. Click on the LEVEL UP (Open by Waitlist Invitation) school page.

5. From here, click on “LEVEL UP: Multidisciplinary Projects” to view all of the different Level UP Internships Program pages available for Fall 2021/Winter 2022. We recommend bookmarking this page so that it's easy to come back to later.

14. To view your application(s), you can click on the request icon on the top right corner of the page. You will also want to keep an eye on your messages. Employers may be reaching out to you to schedule an interview or chat with you about your application.

15. Once an employer accepts your application, you are set to start your project. Reminder: students are only permitted to take on one project through Level UP 1.5. Please make sure to cancel any pending applications once you have been accepted to a project.

16.You can access your project(s) by going to your dashboard and clicking the “Projects” tab. Click on the project.

17. To start the project, you will need to view the “Progress Tab” of that specific project and click “Start Project”. This tab will also let you view the milestones of the project. Remember to stay in contact with the employer in order to stay on track with the project start and end dates as well as the milestones.

*When applying to projects, we encourage you to make the best decision for you, based on your schedule and time management skills.
