Tuition and Fees

Precollege STEM Institute tuition, room and board: $4,980

Fees include faculty supervision, STEM-related discussions and activities, assignment to an Ithaca College residence hall, and a full campus meal plan for the three weeks of the program. It also includes tuition for 3.0 credits of undergraduate research.

Commuters receive a 25% discount. The Commuter rate does not include a meal plan but includes lunch in the dining hall M-F.

Payment in full is due by June 1.

Financial Aid

Students who believe they will be eligible for financial aid when they apply to college are encouraged to apply for financial aid for the summer college program. Financial Aid requests must be postmarked by April 1 to be considered. The Financial Aid Request Form should be downloaded from the call out box at right

A limited number of need-based, partial-tuition scholarships are available for U.S. residents. We're sorry, but scholarships are unavailable for international students.


Should an application have to be canceled after the complete program fees have been paid, please notify the Office of Extended Studies in writing.

A complete refund of the balance of the program fee will be made if notice of cancellation is received by June 15. Cancellations after that date will be considered on an individual basis, and resultant refunds will be partial.
