ASSOCIATE and BACHELOR PROGRAMS
Enjoy quality education at one of the many univerisity, colleges and technical institutes that the US has to offer.
Associate and Bachelor programs in the USA:
Possible duration: 1 semester up to 2 years
An associate’s degree program is a smart option for students who have graduated from high school. These programs are designed to either prepare the student for a specific career, or to transfer to a bachelor's degree program. Junior colleges (or community colleges) are, in general, public funded schools that grant associate’s degrees, which is a great step towards helping you achieve a bachelor’s degree: after graduating from a JC/CC, students can choose to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete their education. Armed with an associate’s degree from a junior college, students only require an average of two extra years of studying to obtain a bachelor’s degree. There are over 1,000 junior colleges to choose from.
Tuition fees are significantly lower than those of four-year colleges and universities, making junior colleges a popular choice. This transfer path is very attractive to students who are looking to keep the cost of studying in the US low while working towards a degree from a college or university. UStudy has even had clients who started their study at a junior college and later transferred to an Ivy League school!

Possible duration: 1 semester up to 4 years
Four-year colleges and universities offer bachelor programs to students who have graduated from high school. A bachelor program in the US usually requires, on average, four years of full-time studying, depending on the type of program. From Art History to Neuroscience, to Accounting and Software Engineering, UStudy students have the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of programs at one of the thousands of colleges and universities in the country.
Both colleges and universities offer undergraduate (associate and bachelor) programs. Contrary to i.e. the Dutch education system, the most significant difference between a college and a university in the US is the level of programs the institution offers. Aside from undergraduate degrees, a university may also offer graduate programs. In addition, while a college usually offers degrees in a specific field (such as arts or engineering), universities often offer programs in multiple disciplines.
With UStudy’s help, the opportunities are endless! From Ivy League schools to liberal arts or junior colleges, from a dynamic urban campus to peaceful rural school grounds. Your dream can become reality! Get in touch with our UStudy advisor now and schedule an appointment to make YOUR American dream come true!

UStudy helped me to set up an American-style resume, and their application specialists assisted me in composing proper application letters. I also took part in their ACT prep workshops, which led to my ACT test score going up. Without UStudy, I probably would not have succeeded; you have to take care of so many things!
Micha van der Lee
I started dreaming of going to college in the US when I was 12. I got in touch with UStudy and that is how it all began. Now I am a junior at Manhattanville College in New York, where I major in Business management, with a minor in Economics.
My mother encouraged me to go to the GO USA Education Fair.
After talking to Marina about all the different options,
it came down to two places: Seattle or back to California – such a hard decision. I made a list of pros and cons.
That’s when I knew I had to go to Cali.
