Application Information

The UGA-IFP is not your typical college class. The program requires you to adapt to a whole new learning environment. We’ve found the students who get the most out of the IFP are enthusiastic and open to discovering new ways to look at the world.

If you love being outdoors, are curious about the natural world, and are ready to give up air-conditioned auditoriums and PowerPoint lectures for a hands-on education in America’s most beautiful scenic areas, then we want you to apply!

The application deadline is the last day of February*. Please be sure that all required materials (application form, references, transcripts and test scores (for non-UGA students)) are sent to us by that date.

We encourage you to apply prior to the deadline to reserve your spot. We review applications as we receive them and will notify you of your status once your application is complete.

*NOTE: Following the February deadline, we often have spots available and are still taking applications. Please contact us to find out if we have space available.
