International Studies - University Transfer

Clark College offers a selection of transfer courses which satisfy the lower-division (usually the first and second year) requirements for four-year institutions in Washington and Oregon. We have Academic Advisors who work specifically with International Students to help you transfer with greater ease. 

After completing an associate in arts or science degree, most of our international students either transfer directly to a four-year university or work for one year through the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program before transferring to a four-year university to complete a bachelor’s degree. 

Conditional Guaranteed Admission to Universities

Clark College international students have been admitted to top-rated universities all over the United States.  Students gain the qualifications needed for admission at Clark College and transfer to top universities to pursue a bachelor’s degree. Admission is not guaranteed, but our students have been very successful in gaining admission to top universities.

How it Works
