High School Plus: Same Program, New Name
We have changed the name of our “High School Completion” program to “High School Plus”. The reason we changed the name was to better communicate that students take academic, college-level classes that count toward their high school diploma plus university transfer. The program is the same; only the name has changed.

University Transfer Workshops for International Students
In addition to providing one-on-one assistance in developing individual Transfer Plans for all students, our International Student Advisors host three transfer workshops during the quarter:

  •  “How to Search for University Workshop”
  • “What classes should I take”
  • “Completing Admission Application”

These workshops give students information and expert advice on how to select and apply to their chosen universities.
