PSIP, Philadelphia Service Immersion Program, is a four day optional early move-in experience of community service, intellectual discovery, and urban exploration. Its goal is to introduce incoming freshmen immediately and intensely to our Jesuit values of social justice, service to those on the margin, moral discernment, and intellectual inquiry. The program is very holistic in design, including intellectual, service, and cultural components.

Dates for PSIP 2018 are Tuesday, August 21st, through Saturday, August 25th, 2018, immediately preceding move-in and Academic Orientation. Space is limited to 196 participants. The fee for PSIP is $180, payable after you are notified of acceptance to the program. Financial aid is available; no one will be excluded because of financial need.

Participant applications will be available online beginning June 1st, 2018. Applications will close on July 2nd at 8:00 AM. Students will be notified of acceptance no later than July 16th, 2018.
