Course Studies in Admissions tests and preparation in North America 2017. The University Pathways program is for international students who wish to study at higher education institutions in the United States, but lack sufficient English proficiency. University Pathways is an intensive English learning program that concentrates on the four basic components of language – reading, writing, listening and speaking; while also providing cultural information to prepare students for success in U.S. universities. Students who successfully complete the University Pathways program have the option to be admitted directly to Greenville College. Curriculum The goal of the University Pathways curriculum of instruction is to develop the English language skills of its students in order for them to be successful in their studies in the United States. The program consists of five levels of instruction. Each level of the program becomes more challenging as students are expected to grow and develop their English language skills. Each level lasts seven weeks and students attend class six to seven hours each day. Class sizes are small to ensure individual attention. Typically, University Pathways classes have no more than ten students. Level 1: Beginning Level 2: Low-intermediate Level 3: Intermediate Level 4: High-intermediate Level 5: Advanced All new students will automatically be placed in level 1 until they arrive on campus and complete the placement test. Following this test, students may be moved up to level 2 or higher based on their scores on the test. There is not a minimum TOEFL score requirement to be admitted to program, but students should demonstrate basic English skills. All the levels in the program develop the following skills: Reading skills to comprehend academic reading materials and answer questions in class and on exams. Writing skills to produce appropriate and acceptable pieces of writing required in all universities or colleges: short essays, longer research papers, reports, etc. Listening comprehension skills to comprehend spoken English in different situations such as everyday conversations, classroom lectures (with the ability to take class notes), professional talks, etc. Speaking and pronunciation skills to converse with others, give oral speeches or reports, and to be understood clearly by the general population of English speakers. Cultural information about life in the United States, including important information on the values and beliefs of the general American population. Students are promoted to the next level if they obtain an overall average grade of at least 75% for all of their classes offered in that level, and must advance through level 5 to graduate from the program. The 75% is based on all work the student has completed in all classes within the level – all assignments, quizzes, exams, etc. Students must repeat a level until they have successfully completed the coursework at that level. Because we believe it is essential for the students to be able to comprehend college level texts in English, write well-developed papers, and comprehend spoken English; we require students to earn a passing grade of 75% or above in two very important classes in Levels 1-4 (Reading and Writing; Listening and Speaking) and three very important classes in Level 5 (Reading; Writing; and Listening and Note-Taking). Students must receive a passing grade of at least 75% in these specific classes, regardless of obtaining an overall average of 75%. Application Process Students must have at least 3 years, or 6 semesters, worth of high school credits completed before they can apply and their file can be reviewed for acceptance. Submit Application Online at www.Greenville.edu – please read the Growing and Learning Together Lifestyle Statement carefully before submitting. Send sealed, official transcripts from your high school/secondary school as well as transcripts for ALL college or post-secondary classes. Submit the completed Certification of Finances along with supporting bank statements and sponsor’s information. (This will be provided once we receive your application.) After passing the VISA interview, the student will be required to provide a photograph for use on a student ID card. Additionally, a HIPAA waiver will be mailed to the student and must be signed prior to the first day of class. [-]
