Complete your degree in four years!

Conditional Admission to the Undergraduate Program

Students needing to improve their English may apply for conditional admittance and enter Saint Michael’s Pathway Program. Many will complete their degree in 4-years—which is the same amount of time it takes for native English speakers to complete their undergraduate degree.

Pathway students take English as well as academic content courses depending on their language level. Those who have spent two semesters or longer in the pathway program and transfer to the degree program will enter the undergraduate program as second-year students, or sophomores.
