The Robinson Center is committed to ensuring that financial need is not a barrier to participation in Transition School. The RC offers financial assistance to students and families with a demonstrated need.

We are committed to increasing access and fostering student potential among students historically marginalized and excluded from advanced learning opportunities.


We encourage students for whom the costs entailed by application to Transition School (including the application fee) might represent a major impediment to submit a completed application and contact the Robinson Center to inquire about exemption or scholarships.


Tuition for the 2023-24 academic year will be $24,000.

What's the Process?

Once accepted to the program, families interested in a needs-based scholarship are asked to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and provide the Robinson Center with a copy of this document.

While TS students are not eligible for federal aid monies available to matriculated students, the FAFSA informs us how to best financially support an applicant.

Our goal is to match or exceed financial assistance that would be offered as a first year college student based on the FAFSA or WAFSA. If a student is eligible for Free/Reduced Lunch, submission of supporting documentation can also be considered as evidence of need.
