Grade Level Designation

If registering for a school-year program, grade level designation is for the grade in which your child is currently enrolled. For summer, it will be the grade your child will be in the fall.

For example: If it is May and your child is currently in 6th grade, the summer
grade level would be 7th grade.

Tuition Assistance

STEM Academy is committed to making it possible for any interested student to participate in camps regardless of his or her financial situation. Up to $290 per term is awarded to qualifying students on a sliding scale, based on family income and circumstances. The application is simple and confidential.

A copy of the tuition assistance form is available to print from the online registration system or by clicking the link below. You are then required to mail us the form with the documentation required and we will process your request. Once we process your form we will send you information on how much tuition assistance has been given to the student; the remaining amount will be due at that time.  When we receive the final check payment, we will send a confirmation letter by mail or email to confirm the students place in the class.

Payment Plans

Should you be experiencing financial difficulties, but are not eligible for the Tuition Assistance, we may be able to set up a payment plan on a case by case basis.  Please contact our office at (541)737-8139 or at stem.academy@oregonstate.edu if you need to discuss this option.

Required Attendance

It is expected that those receiving tuition assistance will attend all sessions of the program they are registered for.  Scholarship money is very limited and we need to ensure that it is being used effectively.  Should a scholarship recipient miss sessions of a program, it may effect their ability to receive additional scholarships in the future.

Expectations

STEM Academy is for interested and motivated students who are willing and able to participate in class. Please let us know in advance if your student has special learning needs. Our instructors make every attempt to provide a successful learning experience for all students. Disruptive students or students who are unable or unwilling to participate in class will be withdrawn from class. No refund will be given.
