Can’t stop thinking about college? Get a taste of collegiate life this summer with our University Prep Program. We will give you the guidance and advice needed to feel more confident and prepared for your academic future. Let us de-mystify the college application process, share financial aid and scholarship resources, and help you find the right schools for your goals and interests. Not only will this program help prepare you for the application process, but it will open your eyes to the exciting and fun experiences colleges have to offer. Residential students will get the true UGA experience: sleep in a dorm on campus, eat in the dining commons, swim at Legion Pool, and explore the campus and downtown Athens.
