Welcome to International Gateways


International Gateways (IG) is celebrating 45 years of English language training and support services this year! Students from over 75 countries have joined IG programs to achieve their academic, professional, or personal goals. 

We are going hybrid in Spring 2021. This means that our English program will consist of online and in-person components. For example, in Session I and Session II of Spring 2021 in the Academic and Test Preparation program in addition to the regular English classes, IG will offer a new mandatory hybrid course called Gateways Seminar. This course will meet on-campus three times (in Week 3, Week 5, and Week 9) for a team-based project that will allow students from different levels to work together and share their work with all IG students and teachers. 

F-1 students who would like to maintain their Active SEVIS status will need to be in the US throughout their enrollment in the IG programs. Non-F-1 students may enroll on a full and part-time basis from both the US and their home countries. The online components of the programs are taught via Zoom and can be easily accessed from your laptop or phone.
