A Successful First Year Starts with Pre-Orientation
4 weeks to improve your English, make new friends, and prep for campus life

Your preparation. Our support. Improve your English skills, get familiar with US university classroom culture, and make new friends, virtually, from anywhere you call home. Enroll in Pre-Orientation this summer, then head to campus with confidence in fall.*

Plan and Prepare

Designed specifically for international students who are starting or continuing their studies in the US this fall, Pre-Orientation familiarizes students with US university classrooms and campus life, while also boosting English language skills. Students will still be required to participate in their university’s Orientation programs when they arrive on campus.

Learn from Home

Over four weeks, study from home and build relationships with instructors and fellow students via American Collegiate’s award-nominated Live technology, which offers more engagement than a traditional classroom. Ask questions, collaborate, and learn in real time. Stay in touch with classmates and receive guidance from local advisors (including local language support).

  • Strengthen your English skills
  • Understand the US education system
  • Earn course certificates for your portfolio
  • Get early access to campus advisors
  • Participate in career-building and Global Citizenship workshops
