Each of the topics below allow you the opportunity to earn college credit for the classroom instruction and off campus activities that you will participate in. Each of the academic programs (Science & Philosophy and Art & History) will grant 2 units per program or the equivalent of 6 credits that are generally transferrable to other similar colleges. The Dance Intensive and the Music Theatre Institute will provide 1 unit each or the equivalent of 3 credits each that are also generally transferrable. Upon successful completion of all programs and coursework, students will receive an official Wagner College transcript reflecting credits earned.
Tuition & Value
Comparing the value of the Summer Pre-College Program to credit courses at similar Liberal Arts schools:
The average tuition of a liberal arts education in the United States among the top 100 schools ranked by US News & World Reports College Rankings is approximately $40,000 per year. Wagner College’s yearly tuition is slightly less and includes nine courses per year. At $40,000, assuming nine courses for a given academic year, the approximate cost of a single course at the top 100 liberal arts schools is $4,444.
The tuition for the Science & Philosophy or Art & History Summer Pre-College Program is $4,999 which includes two courses, housing, scheduled meals, transportation, and admission fees required for activities. This is almost half what you will pay per class upon enrollment in a similar undergraduate liberal arts program.
The tuition for the Dance Intensive Summer Pre-College Program is $2,599, again almost half the cost of a single course at a similar liberal arts school.
