We accept applications from rising 10th - 12th graders. Seniors who will graduate in the spring are also welcome.
Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis, but it is best to apply early as programs fill up quickly.
Applications are available on our website. To apply for Summer Pre-College Programs, we require:
> A written statement of interest: a brief, one-page statement describing why you want to attend Summer Pre-College at UMass Amherst and specifically the program you have chosen.
> An unofficial high school transcript.
> A letter of recommendation written by a teacher or guidance counselor who can speak to your skills, abilities, maturity level and academic accomplishments that make you a suitable candidate for the program you are applying to.
> A $35 non-refundable application fee
International students will be asked to provide additional information regarding TOEFL scores.
