Summer 2022 Tuition, Deadlines and Requirements

Eligibility Requirements

We do not require any prior background on valuation and investing, nor a minimum GPA. We look at all components of your application to evaluate your skills in complex problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity, and leadership. Applicants are expected to meet the following minimum eligibility requirements:

  • Applicants should be preparing to enter their Junior or Senior year of high school in the 2022-2023 school year and have completed at least two years of college preparatory coursework at the high school level before entering the program.
  • Applicants who have not completed at least two years of high school in the U.S. must demonstrate English language proficiency.
  • Residential students (staying overnight in Bentley housing) must be at least 16 years old before the program start date.
Application Requirements

Create an account to access the online application. You will be asked about your high school curriculum (overall GPA and grades in relevant courses) and activities, and you will respond to an essay question. Please enter the name and email address of your recommender (optional) and upload a copy of your unofficial transcript (required) and SAT or ACT scores (optional). If you are requesting financial aid, you will need to work with the parent or guardian who claims you as a dependent to provide tax documents. You may save your work and return to the application later. The $75 application fee will be collected when you submit your application. No further changes can be made once you submit.

Admitted students will be asked to provide additional information, including the Health Insurance and Bentley University Liability forms that must be signed by a parent or legal guardian.
