We will begin accepting applications for the summer 2018 program on December 1, 2017, and will continue to do so on a rolling basis until the class has been filled. Under this rolling admissions process, while there is no set applications deadline, most students submit their application by the end of March. The class is generally complete by mid-April; however, occasionally a space will open up if an admitted student changes their plans, so we encourage interested applicants to inquire about space availability throughout the spring. Historically, students who have applied earlier in the process have had a higher likelihood of admission to SPS.
Tuition for SPS 2018 is $5,800 for residential students, $4,800 for day students (financial aid is available).
