The Global Gateway Academic Preparation Program facilitates admission of top Chinese upper middle school graduates directly into undergraduate degree programs at North Carolina State University through one of two paths. Each student's chosen path will depend upon the individual student's English proficiency level.
Path A: Students begin their academic career in the 5-week Summer START program.
Path B: Students participate in the Summer Institute in English program for 5 weeks in the summer and a 14-week Intensive English Program in the fall before beginning their degree programs in the spring.
