Discover Scripps is an opportunity for students from historically underrepresented backgrounds to explore the Scripps College campus over two days. Prospective students will engage with the on-campus community, spend the night in a residence hall, sit in on intensive classroom discussions, explore our co-curricular activities, get to know professors, staff, and current students, tour our beautiful campus, and discover all of the resources available for historically underrepresented students.

The Scripps College Office of Admission will be hosting two Discover Scripps programs:

  • Sunday, October 7 to Monday, October 8
  • Sunday, October 14 to Monday, October 15

Students will be able to indicate their preferred date on the Discover Scripps application. The deadline to apply to Discover Scripps was Wednesday, August 15.

If you are selected for a program, the College will cover the costs of meals, overnight accommodations, and materials. For students who live at least 150 miles from campus, Scripps will cover round-trip airfare to Ontario airport and transportation between Ontario and the Scripps campus.
