Spring 2022 Start Options

By Shorelight Team
Last updated on September 14, 2021

If your students are interested in enrolling this spring, we have good news: Each Shorelight university is offering on-campus start options in Spring 2022 for both undergraduate and graduate programs.

Shorelight universities are working to provide our students with flexible and supportive start options this spring to ensure they can stay on track with their studies.

All Shorelight universities are offering on-campus start options this spring for undergraduate and graduate programs, and hope to welcome international students to campus in the coming months. We are also aware that students may continue to experience pandemic-related delays regarding visa availability and/or travel, so several universities are providing virtual start programs that enable students to begin their program at home, then continue to campus at a later date.

If students are already in the US with a valid visa, or outside of the US and are able to get a visa, we recommend they come to campus for their studies this spring. If students are outside the US and are unable to get a visa, they can begin their studies virtually — no need to delay. 

We know students are eager to get to campus for the full US university experience, and we are here to help them. As US embassies continue to open around the world, our Enrollment Services and Global Recruitment teams are receiving daily updates and standing by to support you and your students through the visa process.

For virtual learning options, many universities are offering virtual versions of their curriculum, either asynchronously or optimized for other time zones. Also, many universities are offering later application deadlines for virtual programs. Please check with your Shorelight representative for more information.

Others may choose American Collegiate Live, which provides an award-nominated, real-time digital classroom experience with as much direct engagement as a traditional classroom. Plus, students receive bilingual support* for academic coursework with local counselors, courses delivered in their time zone, and recognized credits to partner universities.
