Application and Program Fees

Information on the application and program fees for the Summer College for High School Students.

COVID-19 Vaccination and Policies

Before applying to the program and paying any fees or deposits, please review our COVID-19 policy carefully.

Participants must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination and may not participate unless fully immunized (2 weeks after final dose, including the booster shot if recommended by CDC). Participants will be required to present proof of vaccination. Again, please note that you must be fully immunized by the time you arrive. Refunds are not provided to individuals who fail to provide proof of vaccination.

Participants must abide by all campus COVID-19 health and safety protocols in effect at the time of the summer intensive. Please note that these may change over time as we adjust to continue to respond to the pandemic. Failure to abide by health and safety protocols will result in removal from the program, and refunds are not provided to individuals who fail to comply with health and safety protocols.

In addition, depending upon the level of community transmission, it is possible that participants will be required to test, at their own cost, prior to traveling to Ithaca.
