VSA 2022

12/14/2022

Programs for Talented Youth’s on-campus experiences through Vanderbilt Summer Academy are designed to provide students with the opportunity to take part in a unique residential community of learners. Our policies are developed to support the safety of our students and the larger VSA community. Based on the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, Programs for Talented Youth is still determining its policies for Summer 2022, and those policies remain subject to change.

At this time, after admission into the program, individual COVID-19 vaccination status reporting is optional as part of the health forms and paperwork needed for program participation. Vaccination reporting is not required for students or staff and will not be used during admission consideration or be considered in roommate assignments. Additional policies for Summer 2022, such as universal masking, social distancing, quarantining, and testing requirements, will be announced closer to the start of the program. All policies are subject to change and will reflect mitigation and management guidance from CDC and Vanderbilt University health professionals.

Regardless of COVID-19 policy updates, the application fee for VSA is nonrefundable. Policy updates will be announced as they become available and will remain subject to change. Deposit and tuition payments for VSA are nonrefundable after the communicated deadlines regardless of any changes in COVID-19 policies.

While PTY is currently planning to welcome students to campus in Summer 2022 and to operate on-campus programs, if Vanderbilt University decides that it is in the best interest of students, staff, and the wider community to suspend VSA 2022, families will have the option of receiving a deposit and/or tuition refunded or credited to their account for a future program. The application fee, however, is nonrefundable.
