Admissions Guidelines and Eligibility

Current high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are encouraged to apply to the summer college program. Current seniors who plan to attend college to pursue a STEM field are also welcome to apply.

A strong academic profile is needed for acceptance. Students are expected to have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Applicants with less than a 3.0 GPA should also submit a STEM field teacher recommendation that speaks to the applicant's potential in a STEM field. Applicants with a GPA of less than a 2.5 are ineligible for the precollege STEM Institute.

Applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis, usually within two weeks after completed applications are received. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis based on program capacity.

Acceptance into Ithaca College's summer college program does not guarantee admittance into Ithaca College.
