You may take other non-ESL college credit courses (three or more credit hours) in addition to up to nine credit hours of EAP courses each semester.

Qualified students may apply their financial aid funds to EAP courses.

Although students enroll in various associate degree and certificate programs, most students complete the first 60 hours of general education courses in order to transfer to and complete the last 60 hours of their bachelor’s degree program at another undergraduate institution.

The Global English Institute is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
