INTERNATIONAL UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS:

It is one of Georgian International university’s missions to provide global educational opportunities. We try to understand global academic challenges not only at the graduate and postgraduate levels, but also at the undergraduate level. For that reason we now accept undergraduate credits from foreign universities and help students convert foreign HNDs and Baccalaureates to American Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees by taking additional courses. Classes are held online.

Georgian International University offers several Bachelor of Science majors to HND candidates who would like to top-off their education and to international students with foreign Baccalaureates who wish to convert their credits and receive an American Bachelor of Science degree. Below you will find the list of majors. Please note that in many cases Georgian International University of the United States of America would accept all credits from a foreign school per official transcripts. In the result, depending on the student’s academic background, in each case the student would have to take three to five courses to complete/top-off the degree.
