NYU PEP admits new students each year and offers a minimum of 12 courses per year at the prison. All courses are taught in person and in classrooms that are equipped with desks, white boards, and audiovisual technology.
Students are provided with course materials, and the facility has a computer lab with printers and a research library.
In addition to credit-bearing courses, students participate in non-credit professional workshops and academic tutoring offered by volunteers each semester.
Workshops are developed in collaboration with the NYU PEP student council.
