The undergraduate International Accelerator Program (IAP) is a program comprised of three distinct tracks: the Extended Accelerator, the Academic Accelerator, and the Integrated Accelerator. Students are placed in a program track based on GPA, English language proficiency level, and program-fit. Students will take a combination of English language course work and elective curriculum depending on their choice of major. Once they complete their Accelerator program, students will progress into Year 2 of their undergraduate degree.
