Information for High School Counselors

A final decision about whether Summer Scholars 2021 will be on campus or virtual will be made no later than June 1. When applying, students identify their preference for on campus, virtual, or either. Only those who select on campus or either will be considered for admission if the program is hosted on campus.

The deadline to apply for Summer Scholars 2021 is May 1. 

High school counselors should submit the following items for any students who apply for the Summer Scholars Program:

  • High school transcript (including current year schedule)
  • Letter of recommendation
  • Record of any college aptitude test (PLAN, PSAT, ACT, SAT). This information can be included on the high school transcript. (Test scores are optional.)
  • If English is not a student's native language, please submit TOEFL scores or a letter from the student's English teacher certifying English language skills. For non-native English speakers, either a college aptitude test score or certification of English language skills is required — not both.
  • For students who want to be considered for need-based financial aid, please submit verification of eligibility for free and reduced school lunch.

These items may be uploaded electronically via the application or sent to:
