Pathway Programs

Pathway Programs

INTO USF’s Undergraduate and Graduate Pathway programs are ideal for international students who need additional English language and academic preparation before continuing to a degree program at a U.S. university. Pathway students receive the highest level of support during their transition abroad, making it an ideal choice for international students who are driven to achieve high academic goals.

Undergraduate Programs

The undergraduate Pathway programs at INTO USF combine intensive English language study, academic skills development, and academic coursework in a customized program designed to move students successfully through the first semester or first year of a four-year degree program. INTO USF offers eight different undergraduate Pathways.

Graduate Programs

The academic courses included in the graduate Pathway programs are carefully chosen to ensure success in graduate-level studies. The exact program structure and the combination of classes taken will depend upon a student’s previous academic record and future study plan. Graduate Pathways are taught over one or two semesters. INTO USF offers 38 different graduate Pathways.


Academic advisors are placed in each program to help students understand their curriculum and course requirements, discuss university policies and rules, develop an academic plan or study schedule, and can help students map out a clear path to success. You will meet with your Advisor initially when you attend Orientation the week prior to classes beginning. At that time, you will receive information about your program, courses, and your Advisor.
