Tacoma Community College recently became the first two-year college recognized as a Pathway College for graduates of the Global Assessment Certificate™ program (GAC). The college is now part of a network consisting of more than 100 pathway colleges and universities worldwide. The University of Iowa, Oklahoma State University, and Pacific Lutheran University are among the 34 participating U.S. universities.
“We are very pleased to be the first community college in the country to participate in this highly successful program for international students,” said Tacoma Community College President Pamela Transue. “Because of the way the program is structured, when these students arrive for study at higher education institutions in the United States, they are well prepared to be successful.”
The GAC is an internationally recognized university preparation program that provides students with academic skills and English language proficiency. It is a product of ACT Education Solutions, a subsidiary of ACT Inc. The GAC has Approved Teaching Centers in more than a dozen countries.
