The Discover@Wheaton pre-college summer programs will be offered virtually this year due to the ongoing global impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19). While we will miss seeing students on campus this summer, we will offer an exciting, educational, and socially engaging experience online.

Application Process

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis as they are received.  We will continue to accept students until the programs are full at which time you may be added to a waitlist. Visit the Application Requirements page for more details.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is need-based. Financial aid for domestic and international students is reviewed and disbursed as students are accepted, so it is to your benefit to complete the application process as soon as possible.
