Pre-Freshman Program

Each year, approximately 180 students begin at Penn by joining the Pre-Freshman Program (PFP). PFP is an academically rigorous and intensive four-week summer program preceding New Student Orientation (NSO). Program participants receive comprehensive support services that begin with PFP and continue throughout the students’ undergraduate experience at Penn. This program is a chance for participating students to get an academic and social edge, while quickly becoming familiar with campus resources and the Penn community. While academic in nature, this program encourages students to form lasting bonds of friendships through ongoing social and cultural activities. Students who have participated in PFP report that it has made the difference in their life and studies at Penn.
