For Advisors

UOPI undergraduate accelerator students are admitted into 1 of 3 programs:

1.      International Direct (ID).  ID students meet the English language requirements for direct admission into UOP (IELTS of 6.5+ (TOEFL 80+).  ID students are assigned academic advisors at arrival and meet with them during orientation.  Students follow standard placements and courses in their majors.  For 2 semesters they receive additional support through UOPI including arrival and advising services, help with adjustment to University and US life, and academic support/tutoring as needed. They are required to take 2 courses:

ID Term 1 ID Term 2
COOP 188           Career Search Essentials (1 C hr.) in closed cohort INTL 093              Intro. To Global Citizenship (1 C hr.) in closed cohort


  2.      Academic Accelerator Program (AAP).  AAP students follow a 2-semester program that includes English language classes and closed cohorted credit classes the first term. An English "studio" class is attached to each first term credit course and is specific to the credit course content.  This is an integral part of the English language support students receive. Second term students take a cohorted PACS Plus with a connected studio class. The remaining course hours in Term 2 are chosen from general education or major related courses. AAP students are advised through UOPI and move to academic advisors during the 2nd term of their program. When AAP students complete their accelerator program they matriculate into UOP as 2nd year students.
