American Language Program


Due to the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) concerns, all ALP classes were offered 100% online during Spring semester 2021. All instruction were delivered through Zoom (a synchronous audio/video conferencing platform) that allowed real-time interactions between instructors and students from anywhere in the world. 

In Summer 2021, we're offering a hybrid program which is a combination of online and in-person classes. Students overseas or out of states may continue to take our classes 100% virtually while some students will have several hours of in-person class meetings on campus during the 8-week session. All classes will be held in the evenings, Monday-Friday, 5:00-9:30 PM (Pacific Time). We're issuing I-20s for new students to obtain an F-1 student visa and for transfer students within the U.S.    

For Fall 2021, we will be offering in-person/hybrid classes and issuing I-20s for students who need a student (F-1) visa to enter the U.S. For more information, please email us at
