International Students Hoping to Attend University in the United States
International student enrollment is on the rise at universities and colleges across America, and therefore, the competition is also increasing. How do international students applying to U.S. universities distinguish themselves from their peers? College Admission Coach can help you navigate the American undergraduate admissions process and put forward your best application.
We recognize the unique barriers, both educational and cultural that international students face, and assist you in navigating the educational, financial, social and immigration barriers that could prevent you from attending an American university. Different educational systems, unique transcripts, distinct cultural approaches regarding grading, written teacher evaluations, the availability of extracurricular activities and more need to be analyzed by an experienced expert in the American college admissions process. Beyond helping you develop an understanding of the admissions process at selective American universities, College Admission Coach provides you with the knowledge you need to differentiate between various academic programs and university environments.
