Payments & Financial Aid

Program Costs

Tuition for each course varies and is noted next to the course schedule. Tuition covers meals, lodging, staffing and all other related educational materials, unless otherwise noted.

Payment Deadlines

The application deadline of May 15, 2021 has been extended until all classes are full. A $125 deposit is required within two (2) weeks of acceptance into GoSciTech in order to secure your class preference. Full payment is due three (3) weeks before the student's camp start date. If full payment is not received on or before the payment deadline (see payment chart below), the student may be withdrawn from the class and will not receive a refund of previously paid funds. To secure the course selection, early payments are encouraged. Please make checks payable to GSSM, with the camper's name written on the ledger line.

Refunds and Cancellations 

Program fee refunds must be requested in writing before May 15, 2021. If a class is cancelled for any reason, students will be given the option to transfer to another available class or receive a full refund of all tuition paid. All inquiries should be directed to Susan Engelhardt, program director.

Financial Aid

South Carolina families interested in applying for financial aid may do so within the GoSciTech application. A limited amount of financial aid money is available and is awarded using a need-based formula. If applying for aid, please upload the first two pages of the family's 2019 or 2020 1040 tax return (black out any Social Security Numbers), along with all other application materials, to the online application. The financial aid application is not complete until the tax information is submitted. Please make sure the 1040 that is submitted is claiming the child(ren) who are requesting aid. The financial aid application deadline has been extended past April 15, 2021 until all funds have been awarded. Financial aid money may be available after the deadline, so please check with the camp director if the deadline has passed.

Financial aid is awarded on a needs basis and first-come, first-served basis.
