  • Living on campus is highly recommended for this program. Students who wish to live on campus can find more information about housing by clicking here. Students may apply their financial aid awards toward the cost of housing and meal plans.
  • Prior to the start of classes, all PEP students will be invited for a special event. Check your student email address for more information.

Do I have to live on campus?

While living on campus is not required, it is strongly recommended. Students who live on campus have a higher retention rate than those who reside off campus, make friends faster, learn about themselves and how to live with others, and become engaged with the university much faster.

How do I accept the invitation?

  • Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for 2016-2017 (Georgia State’s school code is 001574)
  • Attend Incept (a separate Incept will be reserved for PEP students, more information will be forwarded to students)
  • Sign the Commitment Statement to participate for fall and spring semesters (available during Incept)
