Phoenix GPS


We will begin accepting applications for the 2015-16 GPS Program by February 2015

Who is eligible to apply?
All new first year students are welcome to apply. But due to the limited number of seats available, to be accepted into the GPS program students must demonstrate a need for the program activities and explain how the program would be useful to them in their application.

We are particularly interested in serving first generation college students in the GPS program, students who are the first in their family to attend college.

Students must be willing to complete the year-long GPS program (so both the fall and spring semesters) in order to be given full consideration.

Applications for 2015-16 will be available by February 2015. To ensure full consideration, please complete your application early!

Upon acceptance, students will be given information about, and will be able to choose from, the available GPS First Year Seminar courses for the Fall semester. Students will also be placed into the Intro to Human Biology GPS course, and the 1-credit GPS workshop section for the fall semester, for a total of 7 credits of coursework during the Fall semester.

In your application, we will ask you to respond to the following question in 200-300 words. We recommend that you complete this response ahead of time and then enter it into your application:

Please describe your need for the Phoenix GPS Program. What elements of the program would be particularly useful to you and why?

Once available (by February 2015), you will be able to complete the online application here!
