The GSSP classes are much smaller than the usual university lecture classes, meaning you’ll get more time with your instructors and classmates. GSSP students also have more class time per class, which gives you more time to understand the course. Tutoring and dedicated student advising services are available to all GSSP students.
Undergraduate GSSP students live on the university campus together with American and international students and can access all of the same campus facilities, including the library, gym, student centers and more.
Graduate GSSP students can live on or off campus, depending on availability.
