PSIP, Philadelphia Service Immersion Program, is a four day optional early move-in experience. Students participate in community service, explore historic and cultural destinations in the Philadelphia area, and foster a community amongst your peers rooted in the Jesuit mission of being with and for others. 

Its goal is to introduce incoming freshmen, and now sophomores, 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 2022 and PSIP 2.0 are Tuesday, August 16th through Friday, August 19th, 2022. The fee for PSIP is $180 and PSIP 2.0 is $98. The fee is 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 for first-year students are now available! Students will be notified of acceptance in late July.

Participant applications for PSIP 2.0 (non first-year students) are now available! Applications close July 1st, 2022.
