Drew University’s Early College Summer Program gives outstanding rising high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to experience college learning first hand as a significantly discounted price!
At Drew Early College, the choice is yours. You can explore a subject that has always fascinated you or discover a new passion altogether!
Through Drew Early College, you’ll take classes taught by our distinguished faculty and have access to all University facilities, including our graduate level library and the Simon Forum and Athletic Center.
As an Early College student, you’ll be studying alongside college students and earning credits that can be applied toward an undergraduate degree at Drew or another school. And by taking college classes, you’ll be demonstrating that you are a student who is excited by learning and capable of handling the academic rigor of a top liberal arts college–an advantage for future applications to highly competitive colleges and universities.
The cost per course for high school students taking on-campus summer classes in summer 2013 is drastically reduced to $350/credit, or $1400 per 4-credit course. Please note that there is no high school discount tuition for the Wall Street Summer Program.

Course Titles and Descriptions
Courses with a 100-level number (i.e.: SOC 101) are introductory and are generally appropriate for Early College students. Students interested in courses beyond the intro level should discuss their options with the Assistant Director of Continuing Education.
To qualify for the program, you should be entering your junior or senior year, be in the top 20% of your class, and demonstrate academic and extracurricular achievement. In addition, your high school must support your participation.
To be considered for the program, complete an application and return it to the Assistant Director of Continuing Education accompanied by an official high school transcript, and recommendations from both a guidance counselor and a high school teacher. If you are applying to take an intermediate or upper-level course (designated with a 200- or 300-level number: PSCI 243, PSYC 348), you will need to have an interview with the Assistant Director of Continuing Education once your application is complete.
