Some community colleges partner with private companies that help with recruitment and programming best suited to international students. One such company is Quad Learning, which has developed a rigorous transfer program leading both domestic and international students from community college through into university. Unlike most community colleges, its American Honors program is based on selective admissions, and its curriculim is closer in style to those provided at a university.
On Friday, the staff at Quad Learning’s DC office welcomed 30 local students from Dunbar Senior High School to participate in DC College Application Week. “The enthusiasm in the room was contagious,” says Phil Bronner, CEO, “not only did the students ask engaging questions, but they also shared their goals for college and beyond.”
omorrow, Spokane Falls Community College in Spokane, Wa. will host the American Honors College Transfer Fair, where current American Honors students will have their first chance to meet with representatives from top four-year universities and colleges to explore the opportunity to transfer seamlessly and complete their bachelor’s degree.
Tomorrow, at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) in West Windsor, N.J., current American Honors students at MCCC and Union County College will meet with representatives from top four-year colleges and universities to explore the opportunity to transfer seamlessly and complete their bachelor degree.
