At this time we are preparing to run the 2020 Skidmore Pre-College Program as scheduled, and we continue to welcome applications. Skidmore College is closely monitoring the situation related to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will continue to work with and follow the guidelines of the CDC, the New York State Department of Health and the Saratoga County Department of Health. If it becomes necessary for the College’s Office of Special Programs to cancel a summer program, all application and program fees will be refunded. Given this rapidly-changing situation, please refer regularly to the Pre-College website and the Skidmore College COVID-19 information page for updates.
