Seventy-two students in the Academic Preparatory Program (APP) at American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS) graduated September 3, 2018, in a ceremony before their friends, families, and instructors.
APP at AUIS is in its tenth year at the University and is accredited by the U.S. Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA). It is the only U.S.-accredited, university-level English language preparatory program in Iraq and the Kurdistan region.
After graduation, students have the necessary proficiency in English reading, speaking, and writing, as well as university-level math skills and awareness of academic culture and expectations to succeed in their first year of undergraduate studies at AUIS.
"We are so very proud of our most recent graduates,” said APP Deputy Director Rachel Ramey. “They have shown how dedicated they are in APP and we know that they will continue to be successful as they move into the undergraduate program."
