This program is designed to provide high school students an introduction and overview of the many career opportunities in the accounting profession. Over four-days, students are introduced to the basics of accounting and provided a glimpse of what to expect from the college experience.
ARP students will attend instructional sessions during the day, with fun activities scheduled in the evenings. The daytime sessions will provide insights into career opportunities in accounting and related fields through panel discussions with national and regional accounting firms and representatives from industry groups and government agencies.
Other sessions will introduce important job skills, including:
- Resume writing
- Workplace ethics
- Business etiquette
- Financial literacy
- Leadership development
Students also get to sample "college life" by lodging in UGA residence halls, eating in the university’s award-winning dining halls, and attending lectures by UGA professors. The evenings are filled with fun outings, entertaining diversions, and time to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow ARP participants.
Program Tuition: $95. A limited number of need-based financial scholarships are available upon acceptance.
For more information, please contact program director Randy Groomes.
Online Application Process
A selection committee will review all applications. Whether you are applying to one or both programs, you only need to submit one application. Take your time and be careful with your application to ensure the best chance for admission. Do not rush.
Two letters of recommendation are required and should be mailed along with a copy of your official transcript:
- A school counselor or teacher
- A second person of your choosing
You should select individuals who know you personally and can speak to your academic ability, conduct, initiative, character, extracurricular involvement, and potential for leadership.
When you initially submit your application, your two recommenders will receive a personalized email within 24 hours. In that email, they will be given access to our online form where they can submit their recommendation.
In addition, you will need to arrange for your high school to submit your official transcript to:
Terry College of Business
Terry Summer Residency Programs
341 Brooks Hall, 310 Herty Drive
Athens, GA, 30602
Selection is a competitive process. All applications will be reviewed based on the quality of candidates’ essays, interests, demonstrated leadership ability, and academic transcript.
Save Your Progress
You will be able to save your application and finish it later, if needed. However, some form fields are marked with an asterisk (*) to indicate they are required before you will be allowed to save your progress.
If you need to modify your application for any reason (e.g. essays, contact information), you may do so by logging in with the username and password you created when you submitted your application for the first time.
