As an ISEP student, you can build your own program by choosing your courses from a variety of fields. Use the notes for course searching to help you find which courses are available. Georgia Southern University offers coursework at the undergraduate level in nearly 100 different programs of study. Students may take coursework from multiple colleges and departments.

Georgia Southern University is classified as a doctoral/research institution by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. It is a member of the University System of Georgia and the largest and most comprehensive research institution in the central coastal Southeast. The University's hallmark is a superior undergraduate experience emphasizing academic distinction, excellent teaching, research, and student success. 

Georgia Southern is known for offering all the benefits of a major university with the personal feel and attention of a much smaller college. Additionally, with an expanding focus on research, Georgia Southern has created a unique niche and is attracting a record number of outstanding students from across the state, region, country, and around the world.


Each apartment has a full kitchen. Cooking utensils will need to be purchased upon arrival. Students can purchase linens in advance and have them shipped to International Programs & Services prior to their arrival.

Linens are not provided but can be rented during the orientation period until students are able to purchase their own.

All students will need to complete a housing application and sign a contract, though no payment will need to be made. This link will be provided upon admission to Georgia Southern. Students will be able to move in on the date their benefits start, which is earlier than the date indicated in the housing contract. Students who are here for one semester will sign a one-year contract and will be released from that contract once their program ends.

Campus housing will remain open during all vacation periods.


Students will receive an "Eagle Unlimited Blue" dining plan and an Eaglexpress 350 package. For more information on what these benefits mean, see online here.

*Calendar Year students are not eligible for ISEP housing and meal benefits over the summer break.
