International Education Program
Partner English Language Schools

Students who are considering applying to College of San Mateo (CSM) and have met all of the admission requirements – with the exception of the English proficiency requirement – may choose to enroll in one of our partner English language schools. When enrolling in a partner English language school, students may request from the partner language school a conditional letter of admission to CSM.

Students will submit an application for admission to CSM when they are near completion of the designated English proficiency program level at the partner language school.
