Costs & Commitment
DUCA is a Fee-based summer program. The fee is $4,500, which provides program fees,
room, board, instructional materials and program activities for all participants.
DUCA students who successfully complete the 5-week program are eligible for a $3,000
renewable annual scholarship should they enroll at Drexel University.
Families are responsible for transportation to and from the program and pocket money.
Students must remain in residence for the full 35-day program, including weekends.
They are expected to arrive promptly for all classes and activities. There are open
periods scheduled every day for personal use, but DUCA does not provide special
facilities or alter schedules for formal athletic training, intensive music study
or other commitments unrelated to the program.
Financial assistance may be available to qualifying applicants. If you seek financial aid, please complete an application FIRST,
