Costs, Fees, & Discounts

2023 Program Costs

Fees are determined by the type (non-credit vs credit) and the number of courses a student enrolls in (one, two, three, four, or five courses). The application and course fees structure supports the administrative functions of the program, staff, faculty, workshops, materials, social programs, maintenance of technology benefits, communication materials, and dining and residential access.

Program Application Fee

Students are required to pay a non-refundable $45 application fee. If financial assistance is needed for the application fee, please contact pcs@uconn.edu to discuss your options.

The application fee is waived for students who are being sponsored by a UConn PCS program partner. Please refer to your program contact for information on how to waive the application fee.

By registering for a UConn PCS course, students have a financial obligation to UConn Pre-College Summer. Students are financially responsible for all courses for which they enroll. Students can view and pay Program Fees by accessing the Status Portal after submitting the course enrollment form.

For registrations taking place thereafter, your fee bill will generate within one week). The University offers a variety of payment options. Cash or payment over the phone are not accepted. Failure to receive an email bill notification does not absolve students of the responsibility of payment by the due date.
