Morehouse is a men's college, and can therefore only accept students who identify as male.

While at Morehouse, ISEP students will join a close community focused on learning, integrity, and personal growth. Morehouse faculty know their students by name and provide mentorship through relationships that last a lifetime. Morehouse’s seven academic divisions led by world-class faculty foster interdisciplinary learning to produce 21st-century critical thinkers.

The average class size is 15 students, so there is a high level of personal interaction between students and faculty. Students typically enroll in four to six classes per term which average 12 to 17 hours in class per week. A term runs for 15 weeks.


ISEP student benefits include housing on campus. Rooms are furnished with a bed, closet/armoire, dresser, desk, and chair for each occupant.  All rooms are equipped with Wi-Fi and streaming services for entertainment at no additional cost. All campus residential houses have a common area with a microwave and seating and there are multiple laundry facilities located on campus. 

Residence hall information can be found here.

Please note that although ISEP students can mention their housing preferences, they do not select where they stay. Housing will be assigned by the Office of Residence Life based on availability and class seniority. 

Students may stay on campus during some vacation periods.  Students must move out on the last day of benefits and cannot stay during the winter break. They will be charged a housing fee if they stay past the last day of benefits. 


As an ISEP student at Morehouse, you will receive a meal plan that includes meals, coffee, snacks, and more at convenient dining locations across campus. Meal benefits are loaded onto your Morehouse Student ID. Healthy meal options are always available and most dietary preferences can be accommodated.
