International High School and College Students Earn U.S. College Credits & Transcript

NOT YET ACCEPTED INTO A U.S. SCHOOL BUT WANT TO EARN COURSE CREDITS ONLINE TOWARDS A U.S. COLLEGE DEGREE?

gradiStock_000020829404_Small

ENROLL TODAY FOR THE ONLINE 12 WEEK, 3 CREDIT U.S. COLLEGE COURSE ENTITLED, “U.S. ACADEMICS AND CULTURE”


Course Summary:

This course will examine cultural dynamics and academic systems unique to international students’ transition and adjustment into U.S. higher educational environments. This intensive college readiness course is grounded on current literature demonstrating direct relationships between pre-departure cultural and academic training with post-arrival student retention, health, socialization, and professional development. This course investigates cultural differences and similarities between their culture and the U.S. culture before creating action plans for experiential learning, skill development, and preparation skills for life and study in the U.S.  This course teaches U.S. student responsibilities and ethics, U.S. classroom dynamics and study skills, initiates early U.S. campus engagement, language and communication skills, cultural integration, and professional development strategies.  This course’s theoretical and practical coursework increases intercultural competencies that empower new international students to navigate complex communities on and off campus.  Through study abroad case studies, international students will identify better strategies to proactively manage post-arrival adjustment into U.S. academics, social, and professional systems.

Student Qualification: 

Students must be an international student preparing to study in the United States of America for an undergraduate degree. Students must have internet access to complete 45 hours of online study.  Students must be able to perform homework, papers, quizzes, a final project, and online discussions in English. If you meet the criteria above, you are invited to enroll in our online U.S. college preparation class and earn U.S. college credit that applies towards your college degree.

Course Process:

Once you earn a passing grade, you will have earned a U.S. college transcript with 3 course credits from an accredited U.S. college!  This online class has limited enrollment each semester because it’s taught by a U.S. college Ph.D. professor who provides personal instruction through custom college-level curriculum.

Class begins online November 1, 2015 and ends in January 31, 2016.

Course Cost:

Unlike other U.S. institutions, we don’t charge International Student Fees, Documentation Fees, Textbook Fees, or Health Insurance so YOU SAVE LOT’S OF MONEY!   International students can typically pay thousands of dollars for 3 college course credits while studying in the United States but because our course is online, you only pay $1,500.00 USD.

Webinar: Discussing a Research Study about Study Abroad and Pre-departure Preparation for Internatioanl Students

Pre-departure Preparation of East Asian Students for U.S. Academic & Cultural Challenges

In our twenty-first century’s IT learning environment, how can we prepare international students for U.S. study before they arrive in the States?

This is the topic I will be discussing during Wednesday’s webinar entitled Developing Cultural Competence at the College and University Level hosted by the Berlitz Training Management Corporation on June 17 (7:00 am PST).

webinar
By helping international students develop better expectations of what they will experience during their first year at a U.S. campus, we can help them better manage cross-cultural adjustment challenges so they function as healthy and happy students whose English and social skills continuously develop as they succeed academically and  professionally.

Join the webinar and learn about how online cultural training is applied in U.S. universities.  Hope to see you Wednesday online.  ~ Tara
