From South Carolina to L.A

<p>hello guys ...</p>

<p>how is everything ? ..</p>

<p>well , im a student from oman and going to complete my studies in u.s.a</p>

<p>i was just wondering if i took a language program in the university of south carolina</p>

<p>( English Programs for Internationals : University</a> of South Carolina)</p>

<p>and after finishing the course i move to los angeles to study in university of california los angeles or university of southern california , is it possible to enter the university without taking the TOEFL or should i take it there ??</p>

<p>& also do the two universities mentioned above ( UCLA , USC ) offer language course for international students to enter the university without taking the TOEFL , SAT , ACT or any other exams ??? </p>

<p>thanks :)</p>

<p>If you want to study in the US, you should learn how to navigate a college website. All of the information you are looking for are easily found online.</p>

<p>For example, see here for USC's international admission process: [International</a> Students - USC Undergraduate Admission<a href="scroll%20down%20to%20%5Bb%5DTest%20Scores%5B/b%5D%20and%20%5Bb%5DEnglish%20Language%20Proficiency%5B/b%5D">/url</a></p>

<p>In short: you will need both TOEFL and SAT/ACT scores in order to apply as a first-year student. If your TOEFL score is below "proficient", you may be placed in an ESL program in your first semester and proceed to academic classes later once you have reached the prerequisite level of proficiency. </p>

<p>Applying to the [url=<a href="http://www.usc.edu/dept/education/langacad/index.htm%5DUSC"&gt;http://www.usc.edu/dept/education/langacad/index.htm]USC&lt;/a> Language Academy](<a href="http://www.usc.edu/admission/undergraduate/apply/inter_students.html%5DInternational"&gt;http://www.usc.edu/admission/undergraduate/apply/inter_students.html) only does not require SAT/ACT or TOEFL scores, but you would only be admitted to a foreign language program and not a degree-granting undergraduate program. You would have to re-apply as a freshman (with all necessary test scores) to take academic classes as a degree-seeking student.</p>
