Admission Requirements

Students in a degree program in California must be either 18 years old or a high school graduate. If you are neither of these, please contact our office at (408) 855-5110 and speak to an advisor. If you plan to attend our intensive English program, you must be 17 years old. In addition,

  • You must have a "C" average or higher from high school. This is important because it is an indicator of your likely success in college.
  • If you want to go directly to the degree program because you have an appropriate TOEFL score (61) or IELTS score (6.0), you must send us an official copy of your TOEFL or IELTS score.
  • You must also have official English copies of your high school and/or college transcripts.
