Engineering - Undergraduate

The Undergraduate Global Student Success Program (GSSP) is equivalent to the first year of a bachelor’s degree program. The GSSP consists of for-credit coursework and provides an academic and cultural bridge from your high school experience to studying at the University of Idaho.

 

When you successfully complete the GSSP, you will move directly into the second year of your undergraduate degree program at the University of Idaho.
