We are excited that you are interested in attending Pepperdine Summer Preview (PSP)!

Please note, this event is for rising high school seniors only, who identify as first-generation college students, meaning neither parent graduated with a bachelor's degree from a four-year college or university.

Who: Rising high school seniors who identify as first-generation college students

What to expect:

During your time at PSP, you will gain a better and more thorough understanding of what life is like at Pepperdine. The Office of Admission will guide you through a workshop on fine-tuning your college application and essay, as well as giving you a broader understanding of financial assistance opportunities. You will learn about the multitude of resources Pepperdine offers to get involved on campus, to build community, to create a home away from home, to ensure academic success, and to cultivate a life of purpose, service, and leadership.
