Undergraduate University Transfer Program

Our University Transfer Program


  • ONCAMPUS Boston offers a 1st year university program at Wheelock College.
  • Students earn 24-32 credits taking a normal freshman course load in classes that are taught by Wheelock College faculty to small groups of international students.
  • In addition, students receive supplemental instruction and training in English and other academic skills.

Program Benefits

The transition to college-level study is challenging for most students. This is especially true for international students who also have to adjust to a different culture, a different language, and an education system that is quite different from the one at home.

Cambridge Education Group programs have been helping international students succeed in their university goals for more than 60 years. Our vast experience in educating students from all over the world has led to the refined and detailed ONCAMPUS Boston program which includes:

  • A supportive environment that helps students acclimate quickly
  • Instruction that builds academic skills (researching, using a library, making presentations)
  • Ongoing instruction to build English language proficiency for general academics
  • Ongoing instruction to build English language proficiency specific to a chosen path of study
  • TOEFL preparation, including exams*
  • Multiple options for your field of study including an option for those who are not ready to choose a major
  • Optional SAT/ACT preparation (SAT/ACT scores must be submitted to apply to some U.S. schools)
  • Ability to earn the same 24 – 32 college credits typical of any first year student

*Students will take one paper-based and one internet-based TOEFL exam

* Students without the sufficient level to take ENG 120 their first semester can either take a second general education class or only take 3 academic classes
**These general education classes are pre-selected as they will transfer to most universities as an elective and ensure that your transcript reflects a well-rounded course plan, as is highly recommended in a U.S. university student’s first year of study.


Earn the credits you need, take the courses you want


All ONCAMPUS Boston students take a minimum of three to four 4-credit courses each semester, while also receiving supplemental instruction in English for Academic Purposes, English for Specific Purposes, academic skills development and TOEFL preparation.

You’ll have the freedom to choose classes that let you explore different subject areas, while ensuring that you complete the coursework typical for any college freshman, and thus can transfer to almost any U.S. college.
