A Complete Solution

The Conditional College Acceptance Program allows you to apply simultaneously to Golden Gate Language Schools (GGLS) and to an affiliate college or university. The affiliate institution will conditionally accept you even though your TOEFL score is below their requirement. You fulfill the institution’s requirement at GGLS by either passing the TOEFL Test or satisfactorily completing GGLS’ Guaranteed Transfer Program without TOEFL. You then transfer to the affiliate college or university.
