International Pathway Program (IPP)

International students who do not meet the English proficiency requirement for direct admission can instead apply for PLU’s International Pathway Program (IPP). The Undergraduate IPP prepares students for academic success at PLU by allowing them to improve their English language skills while taking university classes. First year students in the International Pathway Program will be able to reach sophomore status after one year.

The American Business Culture

The American Business Culture (ABC) program at Pacific Lutheran University is a unique opportunity for third-year students at Shandong Foreign Trade Vocational College (Shandong, China) to rapidly improve their English language proficiency, continue their business education, and experience life at an American university.

This nine-month program (September – May) is a great option for students who plan to work closely with American businesses or are considering matriculating to an American college after finishing their program at Shandong Foreign Trade Vocational College
