INTO OSU Pathways ProgramThe Pathways Program allows language students to take both OSU and English language classes. It is one academic year in length, and student s who enroll in the Pathways Program work toward completing their first year of undergraduate OSU studies while taking some English language classes as well. One nice feature of the Pathways Program is that some OSU classes are “bridged.” That means that these classes have supportive English language classes associated with them that help students prepare for and succeed in the associated OSU class. Those who successfully complete the Pathways Program with grades of C or higher will move on to their second year of OSU and do not take any English language classes. Note that all Pathways students must have a GPA of 2.25 or higher to proceed to their second year at OSU.There are four Pathways programs:- Business- General Studies - Science- EngineeringThe Business Pathways program is intended for those who wish to be business majors at OSU. The Business Pathways Program is three to four terms in length. During fall and winter (or winter and spring terms for January admits), Business Pathways students take English language classes. They also take OSU’s Lifetime Fitness for health, Public Speaking, three terms of Math, Cultural Diversity, English Composition, and Business Now. Business Now, Lifetime Fitness for Health, and Cultural Diversity are supported with English language “bridge” courses.The General Pathways program is open to students who are not science, engineering, or business majors (for example liberal arts majors). The General Pathways program is also three to four terms in length. General Pathways students take English language classes for their first two terms. They also take OSU’s Geography of the Non-Western World, Lifetime Fitness for Health, Public Speaking, three terms of Math, Cultural Diversity, English Composition, and Introduction to Microeconomics or Sociology. The Lifetime Fitness for Health, Geography of the Non-Western World, and Cultural Diversity classes have English language “bridge” or support courses associated with them.There are two start dates for the Business Pathways and General Pathways Programs: Fall of each academic year and winter of each academic year. Students beginning in winter of each academic year will study during the summer. For students beginning in the fall, summer term is either a vacation term, a chance to make up missed or failed courses, or a time to take additional classes.The Science Pathways program is open to those who wish to be science majors at OSU.
