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.

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.  Expect to make great friends with other PSP participants through team bonding activities and build strong relationships with Pepperdine staff.
