Application and Program Fees

Information on the application and program fees for the Summer Theatre Intensive.

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.

Application Fee

There is a non-refundable $35 application fee collected via CampMinder and a $20 fee collected via Acceptd (limited need-based fee waivers available here). 

Program Fees and Enrollment Deposit

Program fees are $5,480 for summer 2022, which includes a three-credit Ithaca College undergraduate course, housing, meals, theatre tickets, structured recreational activities, and access to many other campus resources. 

Admitted students will have 10 days after notification of acceptance to submit a $400 non-refundable enrollment deposit, which will secure their spot in the program. Your paid deposit will be deducted from the program cost.

Payment in full is due by June 1.

Refund Policy

The $35 application fee for CampMinder and the $20 application fee for Acceptd is non-refundable.

The $400 enrollment deposit is non-refundable.

Full refunds of paid program fees, minus the enrollment deposit, due to withdrawal from the program by June 1 will be provided. Partial refunds of program fees after June 1 may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Refund requests should be made in writing to the Office of Extended Studies. 

No refunds are given to participants who fail to comply with COVID-19 policies or  who are dismissed from a program.


Because this is an optional summer program, financial aid is very limited. Financial aid awards are partial scholarships. Our goal is to help those students most likely to be receiving financial aid when they apply to a four-year college program. Requests for aid must be submitted to the Office of Extended Studies by June 1 to be considered, and early submission is encouraged. A financial aid application is available for download below. Please email the completed form to summercollege@ithaca.edu.
