We provide a customized series of programs—Academic English programs, International Year One for undergraduates, and Graduate Pathways for graduate students—designed to support international students’ goals and ambitions as they transition to living and learning in the United States. Each allows students to improve their English language skills while enrolled in University courses they can apply toward their future Suffolk degrees.

At every academic level throughout your program of study, you will receive personalized academic advising and support services. You’ll form close bonds with your professors and fellow students in small classes led by English-language teaching professionals and University faculty members. As an INTO Suffolk student, you’ll enjoy the same privileges as Suffolk students, including full access to all University facilities and offerings—from recreation centers and libraries to clubs, athletics, and events all around campus.
