    • Academic English Program

    • Overview
    • The Academic English Program is offered year-round with sessions beginning multiple times each year. After finishing the program, students are able to use English successfully to complete academic course work at the undergraduate and graduate level and will be ready to participate in classroom interactions as they begin degree studies at the university. Students enrolled in the Program receive 18-25 hours of classroom instruction per week. Students applying for Academic English must have a minimum of a high school diploma, but all students may be accepted regardless of their English language skill level.

      The Academic English Program offers English classes, from elementary to advanced levels. Courses in the program focus on developing the ability to use English to complete university level tasks while building knowledge of academic content and vocabulary. Upon the student's arrival, they are required to take an English proficiency test to help determine the level best-suited to their ability. Students in all levels of instruction develop their reading, writing, speaking, listening, vocabulary, grammar, and cultural skills to prepare themselves for future academic study in a university environment. Through organized classroom instruction and opportunities to engage outside of the classroom with other university and international students at the university, students rapidly build their skills and become more comfortable with English. Additionally, students can choose from a wide variety of elective classes and will have independent study time, outside cultural activities and conversation partner exchanges in order to enhance the overall study experience. Conversation partners meet informally to talk with one another and participate in social activities together. All Academic English Program students have access to university campus facilities. When students complete various levels of the program and meet academic requirements, they will be able to progress to either INTO Pathway programs to undergraduate and graduate study, direct undergraduate or direct graduate admission to the university.

      Small, interactive classes are emphasized to ensure full student participation. Class sizes range from 17 to 20 students. Every effort is made to keep classes at an ideal size for effective English language instruction.

    • Undergraduate Pathway Program (International Year One)

    • Overview
    • The Undergraduate Pathway Program is offered year-round with sessions beginning each semester. Pathways are for students who want to study for a degree in the United States but may have lower test scores, or English language proficiency and require additional academic or language support in order to succeed during their first year in university. Students enrolled in the Pathway program will take both language and academic courses, earning them university credit upon matriculation. The program is especially designed for international students who are driven to achieve their degree in the same amount of time as domestic students.

      The Undergraduate Pathway Program combines intensive language study, academic skills development and academic course work in a specific program designed to move students successfully through the first one or two semesters of a degree program. Pathway programs are available for students who want to study in the fields of Business, Engineering, Computing, Science and General categories. There are Undergraduate Pathways for almost any undergraduate major of interest. From the first day of classes, Pathway students study alongside domestic students in the same courses and receive intensive English language instruction and academic skills development courses. English courses make up a large portion of the Pathway program each semester. These courses will develop the student’s ability to process academic texts and lectures in English, participate in university interactions and produce academic papers and presentations based on research. The student’s grades in these courses will count towards progression to the second year of undergraduate studies. Pathway program students have full access to all of the university facilities, classrooms and accommodations. All classes take place in the heart of campus. All Undergraduate Pathway program students are required to live in on-campus university housing for the first part of their studies. However, students more than one year past high school graduation are not required to live on campus.

      Small, interactive classes are emphasized to ensure full student participation. Every effort is made to keep classes at an ideal size for effective English language instruction. Students receive the highest level of support during their transition to U.S. university life.
