COVID-19 FAQs for Admitted Students


COSMOS Opening Day is Sunday, July 10th, 2022 and Closing Day is Friday, August 5th, 2022 - more details coming soon.

COSMOS is planning to be held in-person in the Summer of 2022 - subject to emerging campus guidance. As a result, the program will be held as a completely closed campus. Parents/guardians will not be allowed to visit and students will not be allowed to leave the program for the entire four weeks.

For the 2022 program, COSMOS is limited to residents of California only. All COSMOS students will be required to show proof of vaccination as well as a negative COVID test taken 48 hours prior to arrival.


COSMOS strives to motivate the most creative minds of the new generation of prospective scientists, engineers, and mathematicians who will become the future leaders for California, our nation, and the world. The program aims to create a community of students who participate in and contribute to an intensive academic experience delivered by distinguished educators and scholars.
