The Summer Pre-College Programs at Susquehanna showcase the university’s colleges of the arts, business, humanities and sciences by offering exciting and engaging, weeklong on-campus workshops designed especially for high-achieving high school students. Faculty and college student mentors challenge high schoolers who want to learn new skills, improve their abilities or explore topics that can add to their college résumé.

Rising high school seniors who attend a Summer Pre-College Program will earn a $1,000 Visit Grant — $4,000 over four years. This grant will be automatically awarded in addition to any other merit or need-based financial aid you might qualify for.
