Congratulations! You've taken the first step toward an education in the United States of America. The people you will meet and the experiences you will have will change your life forever.
Many international students come to UCC to improve their English language skills. UCC's international students find they have more involvement with English speaking students and members of the community here, and learn the language more quickly than they would if they were living and associating with a large group of students from their own culture at a large university.
International students need to have their credentials evaluated by a Credential Evaluation Service before credits can be transferred to UCC. This evaluation determines the United States education equivalent and provides a recommendation on how to award credit. Click on Credential Evaluation Services to find companies that provide this service and their cost information.
