US Pathway Program (USPP)

For Prospective Students Residing in China or Nigeria

The US Pathway Program (USPP) is a multi-component program created by the Consortium of North American Universities (CNAU). Through USPP, students in China and Nigeria are prepared for the transition to a bachelor's degree program in one of the consortium institutions in the USA. After studying in one of the program centers in China or Nigeria, and upon successful completion of the program, USPP students are offered admission to a CNAU member institution without requiring a TOEFL or IELTS score. Through USPP, students take undergraduate-level academic classes and comprehensive English and study skills preparation, within a supportive learning environment. Students who successfully complete the program can earn up to 33 semester hours of credit, allowing them to matriculate as sophomore students.
