NJC International Pathway Program

The International Pathway Program (IPP) was created for students allowing them to transfer into a Northeastern Junior College certificate or associate degree program. Once the program has been successfully completed, students will be able to advance into a program of their choice!

IPP provides students who are qualified for college coursework but they are lacking English proficiency. This opportunity provides students with the skills they need to gain English competence, confidence, and gain cultural knowledge to succeed not only academically but socially and professionally.

Student Testimonial

"The reason I choose NJC was because of the chance to combine my education with soccer. NJC helped me develop myself as a person on and off the field. The people from NJC are all really nice people who all feel like family. Sarah Stone-Robinson was one of those people and she helped me in every aspect. She made it feel like home and I couldn't ask for a better international student advisor for my first 2 years. Everybody became family and Sarah is definitely one of them."

-Dani van Steijn, The Netherlands
