Program Description

For students to improve their English and transition into a Bachelors degree program

Students with lower English skills who wish to enter a US university may apply for conditional admittance and enter the Pathway Program. Many will complete their degree in the same amount of time it takes for native English speakers to complete their degree.

Depending on the language level, students will start out in the Intensive or Academic English Program and transfer into their degree program within one or more semesters.
