Global Student Success Program

The University of Idaho Global Student Success Program (GSSP) is for international students at all levels of academic and English language preparation. We provide a robust support program to students during the first year of study, which helps increase success in their university program and professional career.

Undergraduate Global Student Success Program

Undergraduate GSSP students spend the first year of their bachelors degree in small classes tailored to international students that help prepare them for an American university education. Outside of class, you'll participate in activities that introduce you to American culture and begin to forge a bond between you, your peers and the wider university community. When you successfully complete the program, you will enter the second year of coursework in your major program.

Graduate Global Student Success Program

The Graduate GSSP is a two-semester program 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. You will complete between six and 12 credits applicable to your master’s degree, as well as a set of courses designed to help you develop the skills and knowledge to succeed in U of I graduate programs.
