Summer Programs 2018
During the summer, many colleges offer camps (both day and residential) that allow students to experience life on campus and explore career interests. These programs vary in cost depending on the length of the program and what is included--ranging from less than $300 to more than $5000. Some programs have scholarships available, but many are limited so apply early for the best chance!
Many of these programs are well known and very popular. Because of that they fill up quickly. Registration opens for many of these shortly after the new year and for most programs it's first-come, first-served.
