Discover Your Island

International Study Center


Starting in Fall 2017, Texas A&M - Corpus Christi (TAMU-CC) will launch a new International Study Center (ISC) offering both undergraduate and graduate pathway programs that are designed to prepare international students to enter a degree program at the university.

The ISC is a dedicated on-campus facility offered in partnership with Study Group, a global leader in preparing international students for academic success.  

At the undergraduate level, the ISC offers the International Year 1 (IY1) program that combines customized English for Academic Purposes courses and first-year university credit-bearing academic courses over 1-4 semesters (4-16 months).  At the graduate level, students can join the 1- or 2-semester Pre-Master’s Program (PMP) where they will gain English proficiency as well as important study skills for graduate studies and orientation to American university life.  ISC students are fully immersed in the A&M – Corpus Christi campus experience, while being surrounded by an additional community of support that helps international students adapt and thrive on campus.

Prospective students should visit the International Study Center’s website http://isc.tamucc.edu/  for more information about the pathway programs.  The website also has detailed instructions about applying to the ISC.
