School Details

Admission Policy

The INTERLINK program is designed for students with a basic knowledge of English* but who have not yet attained the proficiency required for college admission or vocational competence. There is no minimum or maximum age requirement (most of our students are in their late teens and 20’s) although students must be high school graduates with a C+ or better GPA. Language and cultural heterogeneity are deemed important for program quality and prospective students may be advised to attend a particular center or delay enrollment for greater student diversity. Maximum enrollment capabilities currently range from 70-120 at our centers; students can receive specific enrollment data from any center. Regardless of program size, class size is limited (12 for R/W classes and 15 for C/S classes). Applicants are required to disclose in writing any criminal charges against them (such charges may disqualify them from admission if so dictated by federal, state or campus regulations).

  • A completed application form – submit online or by fax or post

Located on the campuses of top-ranked U.S. universities, INTERLINK offers its students full access to all facilities and many academic services, including assistance with conditional admission to these institutions. Additionally, students can meet American students and professors, audit or take classes for credit, and experience university campus life. Throughout the students’ stay, dedicated faculty and staff assist them with their personal, cultural, and academic challenges.
