On August 18th, 2014, BridgePathways at Philadelphia University opened its doors to its first cohort of international students. With their degrees chosen, students were about to begin their lives on-campus as Academic English students. Now those same students are on track to earn degrees from Philadelphia University. We are proud to celebrate the first year of this center; it has certainly been eventful! As the number of international students keeps growing, the center now welcomes students from more countries than ever before!
Conditional admission to an American university is quite possibly the most common request from international students planning to study in the United States, but what exactly is conditional admission? In a few words, conditional admission is an official letter from a university stating that a student is academically admissible to a degree program and will be granted full-admission upon reaching an appropriate level of English proficiency.
