Presentation Transcript

SCC’s International Student Program (ISP)

The What: Stage I

  • Serves F-1 Visa students

  • Minimum of 12 units

  • Interested in credit courses

  • Hopes of transfer to a four year institution

The What: Stage II

  • Implement SCC’s American Language Institute (ALI)

  • Serves credit students as well as not-for-credit students

  • Funding is similar to our community services program where students pay for courses

  • Need a minimum of 25 (or 50) students to break even

  • These classes will be primarily in non-credit

  • A one month program for visitors

  • Intensive ACE/ESL classes that focus on conversational English (speaking and writing)

  • Includes cultural activities/events in afternoons/on Fridays

  • Components will expand to serve F-1 Visa students

The What: Stage III

  • Not-for-credit, community service type courses

  • Continue and grow classes in the summer for teenage students

  • Leave curriculum to the faculty

  • Grow the program into an intensive education program

  • Hope is to grow this to include not-for-credit adults—business folk interested in immersion in the English language and the American culture

  • Diana Babayan is already looking into creating/revising curriculum

  • Craig Rutan and I are also involved in the process

The Who

  • Currently continuing to foster relationship with Stephen Zhang

  • Current ISP students will come from China

  • Current credit and non-credit faculty will have the right of first refusal

  • Will be paid like contract employees

  • Will need one ISP Coordinator by 14/15 academic year

  • Will need an adjunct Counselor by the same time

  • Will also need faculty—credit and non-credit

Enrollment Priority

  • Current SCC students will not be displaced

  • ISP students will be encouraged to take lower enrolled classes: afternoons and evenings

  • More classes will be offered

  • Current students may have more opportunities to take the additional classes


  • Initial start-up funds from Chancellor

  • Funding for this program will NOT dip into general funds

  • Seeking a loan with the SCC Foundation to be paid back in 2015

  • With a minimum of 25 (or 50) students, the program can pay for itself
