What is the GSSP?

The University of Idaho Global Student Success Program is designed to ensure you gain the necessary skills to excel in your undergraduate or graduate degree program.

Undergraduate Global Student Success Program

The Undergraduate 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 a university in the United States. When you successfully complete the GSSP, you will move directly into the second year of your undergraduate degree program.

Graduate Global Student Success Program

The Graduate GSSP is a two-semester program designed for students who have completed a bachelor's degree, but need additional academic and/or English support to gain entry to a master's degree program. No GRE/GMAT is needed to apply.
