More about the INTO Hofstra Center

Benefit from a big city and small community

When you study in our English language and Pathway programs, we help you adapt to American university life and prepare you for not only your degree studies, but your career pursuits as well. You'll meet friends from around the US and from all over the world when you participate in activities and gain transferable skills inside and outside the classroom.

A seamless US transition

From the moment you enroll in an academic program, you have access to use all facilities and resources throughout campus. Take advantage of state-of-the-art technology and comfortable on-campus accommodations suited to your needs. We want you to have the best academic experience possible during your time at Hofstra.

The INTO Hofstra Advantage

Hofstra partners with INTO to create a support system for international students. Our Academic English, International Year One and Graduate Pathway programs help you transition to a US degree program. You will enter a fully integrated program where you will learn alongside your American peers to earn academic credits towards your Hofstra degree while developing your English and academic skills. Upon successful completion of your Pathway program, you will continue working to complete your Hofstra degree.
