  • Living on campus is highly recommended for this program, but not required. Students participating in the Success Academy will be housed in Piedmont North in a Shared Bedroom for $1,100.00.
  • Students who chose to live on campus will be required to have a meal plan. The meal plan rate is $900.00, which provides 3 meals per day, all you can eat for seven weeks.
  • Housing and meal plans can be covered by Financial Aid.


Once you have accepted the invitation to join the program and received your Campus ID, you can fill out the Georgia State Housing application.

Make sure to complete the “June-July 2017” contract. There is a $100.00 room reservation fee required immediately that will be applied to your overall cost for housing. Students participating in the Success Academy will be housed in Piedmont North in a Shared Bedroom for $1,100.00. You will need to indicate your participation in the Academy on the contract. Students who live in Housing will also be required to purchase a meal plan for $900.00, which provides 3 meals per day/all you can eat for seven weeks.

Please note that living on campus during the summer semester does not guarantee a bed for the fall semester. Students who wish to live on campus for fall and spring must complete a separate application on Housing’s website.

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. Every student participating in Success Academy should consider their own financial situation, however.

How do I accept the invitation?

After receiving the invitation from the Office of Admissions, students will need to complete the Intent to Enroll form online. To learn more about the program, it is recommended that students and parents/guests attend one of the receptions hosted by the Offices of Admissions and Undergraduate Studies.
