Academics: The general outline of the program is described above. A bachelor’s degree in a business field, usually finance, is awarded by the final US university in year 4. More than four years may be necessary to complete the program, depending on English ability, major, grades and curricular fit with the degree-granting university. Some students have chosen, in fact, to spend more than a year at GRCC to improve their gpa’s.
Post-graduation: Students can work in the US for one year of Optional Practical Training (OPT) following their Bachelor’s Degrees without having to change from an F-1 student visa. Students can also go right on to graduate school and earn an MBA or Master’s degree in another subject, or return to China to work.
Minimum qualifications: XAIU gpa of 2.0. Exceptions are made only by recommendation of XAIU and approval of GRCC. IELTS 5.5 (all bands 5.0 or higher) or TOEFL 61 recommended but not required; students without these English qualifications will start in Intensive ESL, making the program more than one year.
