Undergraduate cooperative programs


Several schools partner with GIAL to offer specialized programs to their students, such as a minor in linguistics.  While programs vary from school to school, most require at least one semester of courses at GIAL.  Most students will need to apply for Undergraduate Admission at GIAL before taking these classes.  Registration requirements, financial aid, and how to pay varies from school to school. Students should consult with their academic advisors at both institutions prior to enrolling in classes at GIAL.

Looking for another school? Many schools will allow you to transfer credit from GIAL without a formal cooperative program.  When you talk to your college advisor, be sure to mention that GIAL is fully accredited.
