The undergraduate International Gateway Program (IGP) is a one-semester, 14-credit program designed specifically for students offered conditional admission to American University (AU) programs. IGP provides students with a full immersion into U.S. academic culture and teaches the critical academic reading, writing, and oral communication skills. Students who successfully complete the program by earning a grade of "C" or better in each of the IGP courses will be admitted and enrolled in their AU program the following semester.
Please note that the IGP does not solicit or accept applications from the general public.
To have received an invitation to participate in the IGP, you must have applied to one of these AU programs:
- International Admissions Office of Admissions
