About the Course

ELP instructor Erick Hyde teaches a second version of his Coursera course on Applying to U.S. Universities. This course helps international students navigate the U.S. university admission process by offering practical information about the documents and pieces that make up a U.S. university application.  Admission officers discuss how they use those pieces to decide who is accepted and who is denied, so that students can understand the process beyond the pieces.  

By the end of this course, students will understand application basics that include researching schools, creating a school list, and establishing an application plan.  This course will not answer all of a student's questions, but will teach students to ask the right questions of themselves and the universities.  Ultimately, students will have all the information they need to start their process the right way, putting them on the path to acceptance.
