2019 Registration Overview

Registering is quick and easy – just click “Register Now” to get started! The process takes approximately 15 minutes, and requires only general contact and payment information. You’ll start by choosing your campus, picking your pre-college course and then deciding how long you want to stay at your pre-college summer program. Stay for 1 week, 2 weeks or combine programs and sessions for up to 4 weeks of career and college readiness!

Then enter your contact and payment information and your registration is complete! Blueprint will follow up with a confirmation email that includes your registration details, along with instructions on how to get ready for the adventure of your life.

Blueprint Admissions Standards

At Blueprint, we believe every student should have the opportunity to truly prepare for college, which is why (unlike most pre-college programs) we don’t require any transcripts, essays or letters of recommendation. Students of all backgrounds have experienced successful summers with Blueprint. However, it is important for students to understand that with each Blueprint program comes independence and opportunity.

We expect a lot from our students, and each Blueprint program is founded on the principles of honesty, compassion, personal responsibility and safety. If you have any questions as to whether Blueprint Summer Programs is the right fit, please contact our admissions office before completing the online registration process (877.415.1111).

Program Costs For Blueprint’s Pre-College Programs

Blueprint programs vary in cost based on location, but you receive the same high-quality programming no matter which campus you attend. Tuition is designed to cover everything your student will need while at Blueprint! University housing. On-campus activities. Supervision. Classroom instruction. Three meals per day. Everything! You won’t even need to submit an additional application fee. The only additional, non-optional fee is a $75 Materials and Technology fee per registration.

We do suggest a little “walk around” money if students want  to pick up snacks and things like that. But unless you want us to meet your student at the airport or your course has a small lab fee to cover materials, your program tuition covers absolutely everything.

With options to pay in full or set up a monthly payment plan, registration is super fast and hassle-free.

For Families On A Budget: Payment Plans Available!

We know you’re already saving for college tuition, so we’ve made paying for a pre-college summer program fit with your budget. Families may elect to pay just the deposit and break up the remainder of the tuition into easy monthly payments. Have a family member that wants to contribute? Did you receive a scholarship for a summer program? You can make additional payments at any time.

The best experience of my daughter’s life. Her words. Thank you!

Blueprint was the best part of my summer. It gave me a taste of college and helped me discover the type of college I would like to attend. I would not pass up a chance to do this program.


By the second day we had each other laughing hysterically on our way back from the dining hall! I couldn’t believe how quickly we all became friends.
