How the Level UP waitlist works

If you have questions about how to get invited to join Level UP and how the waitlist works

Updated over a week ago

Level UP is designed to be a fair and equitable program. Due to high demand and limited opportunities for participation, the waitlist ensures that we uphold these values.

If you complete the eligibility form and meet the criteria, you will be added to the waitlist.

Being on the list does not guarantee entry to Level UP.

Things to know about the waitlist

Previous Level UP participation or a project offer from an employer does not grant you entry: Having previously worked on a Level UP project or knowing an employer with a project ready for you doesn't guarantee priority access to Level UP. We are committed to upholding fairness and equal opportunities for all students, which means honouring the waitlist for granting access.

*It's important to note that starting work off-platform before being invited to Level UP and accepted into a project is prohibited and won't guarantee payment. To start work, you must be invited, apply to the project, be accepted by the employer, complete your onboarding survey, and hit "start project". Learn more here.

Join the waitlist: You can join the waitlist by completing the eligibility form. If you are eligible, you will receive an email to confirm that you are on the waitlist.

Invitation Process: When it's your turn, you'll receive an invitation with instructions to access Level UP. If you haven't received an invitation yet, you won't be able to search or apply for projects. This program has high demand and limited funding, but once selected from the waitlist, you'll receive an email with an invitation link and instructions for the next steps.

Rolling invitations: Students from the waitlist are invited to join Level UP every week. While we can't provide specific entry dates, during open cycles, we aim to keep waitlist times under 2 weeks. Note that this is not guaranteed.

What can you do for now?:

While you patiently await your invitation to Level UP, here are a few proactive steps you can take:

  • Prepare your documents: Have a copy of your government-issued ID and a Proof of Enrolment letter from your educational institution ready. These will be required for verification purposes when you gain access.

  • Get ready to update your payment information: Riipen has partnered with a third-party payment provider called Tipalti. You will need to add your banking information with the following information:

    • Your bank account details.

    • Your bank's branch address (easily found through a quick Google search).

    • Your SIN (Social Insurance Number).

    • A government-issued identification document.

      After completing the Tipalti registration, you can simply exit that process, return to the Riipen portal, and continue with the sign-up process! 🎉

      For more information about payments, please refer to our help article.
