The Graduate International Gateway Program (IGP) is a semester-long, academic bridge program designed specifically for students who have been admitted to one of American University’s graduate programs. IGP provides students with a full immersion into U.S. academic culture, sharpens their communication abilities, and builds the necessary confidence and skills to succeed in graduate-level study and research. Students must successfully complete the three required prerequisite IGP courses by earning a “B” or better to continue in their graduate program.
Please note that IGP does not solicit or accept applications from the general public. In order to participate in IGP, you must apply to one of American University’s graduate schools and then receive an offer of admission from that graduate school.
