Admissions Process

High school students gather around as one of them participates in a class activity during the Atoms at Work course in Summer 2023.

Once you have submitted a complete application, uploaded your most recent high school transcript, and paid the $60 non-refundable application fee, your application will be queued for review. Initial admission decisions will begin to release mid-January 2024 and then continue on a rolling basis. 

There are two steps to the admission decision process:

  1. After an admission decision has been made, you will receive an email notifying you a decision has been made and directing you to log into your application portal. Your admission decision will be available under "View Decisions." If you have been offered admission, you will receive a general admission letter communicating your admission to Summer College for High School Students as a whole. Be sure to read through the letter carefully. Please note: This letter will not include what short-term course or residential program you may have been admitted to. Continue to step 2 for more information about the secondary special program decision.
  2. Within 2-3 business days, you will receive an email from a Pre-College Pathways team member with the short-term course or special program decision. 

Once you receive your short-term course or special program decision, you are ready to accept your offer!

Please note: Due to the popularity of our short-term courses, students will only be initially admitted into one short-term experience. Any opportunity to participate in an additional short-term course will be announced early spring.
