The Global Assessment Certificate™ (GAC) program is an internationally recognized university preparation program for students who want to study at a university which uses English as its language of instruction. GAC Pathway Universities are located in Australia, Cambodia, Canada, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, the United Kingdom, the United States and Vietnam.
Some of the universities in the United States that recognize the GAC offer credit points for an undergraduate degree, and a number of them offer scholarships which can significantly reduce tuition and living expenses. Many of them offer credits of up to 39 as recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE) and up to 36 as recognised by the Academic Credentials Evaluation Institute (ACEI).
Upon successful completion of the GAC, you will be able to apply to any one of the GAC Pathway Universities, subject to meeting their individual requirements. Each university has different entry criteria for GAC graduates, including English language ability and academic performance.
