Financial Aid

Application fee waivers are granted rarely and only in extreme circumstances. Very limited need-based, partial scholarships are available to students who apply for the program. The Office of Pre-College Programs does not offer merit-based financial assistance or scholarships. Please note that submitting a request for financial aid does not guarantee an application fee waiver or scholarship. Fee waiver decisions will be made on a weekly basis. Once a decision is made, you will be notified via email. Decisions regarding admission will be made regardless of financial aid request, and notification of financial aid will be included with admission decision letters.
