Gain the competitive edge with SEP!

Held each summer on the UNC campus, the SEP Program is an eight-week, honors-level academic enrichment program for underrepresented minority, first generation, socioeconomically, and geographically disadvantaged students who seek admission into graduate/health professional programs.
