Transferring to College in the U.S.
Many MLI students have gone on to study at colleges in the U.S.
There are 2 ways to transfer to college from MLI:
1) Take a TOEFL® or IELTS™ course, obtain the required score, apply, and transfer.
2) Transfer to one of MLI's affiliated colleges by completing a specified level of the ESL program.
Partner Colleges Affiliated with MLI
MLI has many partner colleges within California that allow MLI students to transfer without taking TOEFL® or other entrance examinations.

You can prepare to go to College for Half the Price
Studying English with MLI, and then going to college will save you time and money. Before international students can take regular college courses, they must reach required English proficiency. College ESL courses are expensive, costing the same as regular college courses. MLI offers English courses at a fraction of college pricing.
For example, let's compare Santa Monica College ESL course rates to MLI course rates.
＜Santa Monica College＞
Fee per unit $335 / 16 weeks (number of classes per semester) = $ 20.93 / hour
$3,008 /320 hours (16 weeks) = $9.4 / hour
You pay more than double when you take ESL courses at college.
Furthermore, ESL programs at college do not offer college credit, and in most cases admission to the college is not guaranteed.
