Undergraduate Programs

For international students, the move from high school in your home country to a university in the United States can be challenging—a new language, new ways of learning, and a new home.

Our programs ease this transition by combining credit-bearing courses from the first year of your degree with additional support services, instruction tailored to your academic and language level, and cultural experiences, helping ensure your future success.
