Pathways to University Programs

University Partnerships: Auburn University, Florida International University, Louisiana State University, The University of Illinois at Chicago, University of Central Florida, University of Kansas, University of South Carolina, Adelphi University, University of the Pacific and American University Washington, DC

SOLEX College partnered with Shorelight Education, a Massachusetts-based company that works with leading universities to increase access for international students. The partnership builds upon SOLEX College’s current international student programs, and provides support to help English as Second Language (ESL) students successfully understand the cultural and social differences of an American university education.

Through this partnership, SOLEX College and Shorelight Education offers students a full study plan before visa appointments, packaging a conditional admission with an ESL program. Students at SOLEX College will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in academic classes mainstreamed with American students, while also participating in English language, culture, and community building seminars. “Partnership with Shorelight Education opens up a new chapter in SOLEX’s development,” said Dr. Leon E. Linton, President of SOLEX College. “Now the full spectrum of learning and cultural services that we provide to our multinational student group will assure their clear passage into leading U.S. universities.”

Shorelight’s program comes at a time of increased demand from international students seeking an American college experience, while academic institutions are striving for more globally diverse campus environments. With this partnership, SOLEX will be able to attract students from around the world and offer them a clear progression to an undergraduate degree at a U.S. university.

Shorelight Education currently partners with top universities from across the country, including: 

- Auburn University
