NOTE: As this location is new, we are not yet able to issue I-20s. For the 2017-2018 academic year, we can only enroll students on a full-time basis if they are currently residents in the US. In the future, we will issue I-20s for international students who wish to join our program.

Bachson Program

  • Students enroll in 18–20 hours a week of intensive non-credit English classes and 1 to 2 credit classes.
