Summer Pre-College

Application Information

Prospective students must apply for admission to the program. Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis, beginning in early March. Many courses fill quickly, so prospective students are encouraged to apply early for the best chance of enrolling in first-choice courses. The deadline for students applying for financial aid is April 1, 2015.

High school students currently in their sophomore, junior or senior year are eligible to apply as either residential or day/commuter students. Current high school freshman may apply as day/commuter students only. International applicants will require a student visa to study in the United States.

Completed applications are reviewed by the admissions committee. Applicants are evaluated on academic excellence, intellectual curiosity, and readiness to study and live independently in a college setting. Applicants are notified of the admissions committee's decision by email, usually within two weeks of the application's completion. Accepted students must confirm their attendance with a $500 non-refundable program deposit.
