SESSION TITLE: Foundation Year Programs for Conditionally Admitted International Students: Two Models

ABSTRACT: Conditional admission and foundation year programs for international students increase a university’s potential to recruit, enroll, and retain candidates who initially do not meet admission criteria of the institution. In this presentation, panelists from George Mason and Drexel University describe their in-house foundation year programs, including the structure and curricular goals of the programs, financial structures, lessons learned during the planning period, and challenges encountered during the programs’ initial years.
