International students who study in the US are required to have a certain level of proficiency in the English language. These levels are determined by standardized tests such as the Test of English as a Foreign Language, or TOEFL. Students who do not achieve a certain score on these tests will not be accepted to study at a US college or university. However, pathway programs provide an opportunity for international students to study English while studying in the US, so if your English skills are not yet strong enough to pass the TOEFL, pathway programs are a good option for you. The Illinois State University INTO Pathway Program will allow you more time to choose a major, give you better odds for undergraduate admission, and the chance and time to adjust to US culture.
