Special announcement for the 2022-23 MAPP year: We are currently working to make a decision on the format of the MAPP program for the 2022-23 academic year. As a global program, with approximately 30% of each class coming from outside the U.S., it is important that we ensure travel to campus is safe for everyone before returning to a hybrid model with on-campus classes. We also need to ensure we are following Penn’s COVID policies, as well as the public health guidelines of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the U.S. Please check back here in early 2022 for an official announcement. Thank you for your patience.
