The HESEAP Fast-Track Degree Program is a program in which previous education and experience is evaluated and if it meets our school’s strict requirements, is credited as required classroom learning.  As a fully active member/volunteer of an organization for a minimum of the past four years you qualify for the full HESEAP Fast-Track Degree Program.  For full details on the program visit: https://usilacs.org/usilacs-fast-track-college-degree-program/

The SSG differs from the standard courses in that it is directed to providing up to date information regarding obtaining employment and work-permits needed to legally work or volunteer in China, Thailand, and other countries.

Exams are timed and allow you 90 minutes to complete 40 multiple choice or true and false questions.

If you fail an exam or are unhappy with the grade achieved, you have the option to upgrade to our Premium Exam for that course.  Premium Exams are untimed, can be taken up to 10 times. The Premium Exam option can be purchased for any course desired for a fee of $39.95. 

A Bachelor Degree, or as some call an Undergraduate degree, requires 120 credit hours to complete.  It is not a calendar-based degree, but rather credit-hour based.  The time a student takes to complete their Bachelor Degree is totally dependent on how many credit hours a student takes per semester.  Our school uses a full class load, of 12 to 15 credit hours per semester, with three semesters per year.  This method allows our Fast-Track students to graduate in three years as opposed to four.  When you hear or read a reference to a four-year degree, they are referring to a 120-hour undergraduate degree or Bachelor Degree.

Having a previous TESOL will not reduce the time of your course or tuition; however, it will assist you when you “test-out” on your TESOL required course.

Yes, we are an accredited college. Accreditations, Listings and Legal Compliance

No limit, your enrollment never expires

No; however, we strongly recommend that in most cases students be a minimum of 20 years old.  The reason for this recommendation is as follows: The average student in the USA graduates college with a Bachelor Degree between the age of 21-23. However, we must keep in mind that these are the statistics for the average person. There is still the group or percentile of those who attended home-school, graduated high school early due to excelling academically, or attended an online school. Realistically, this means that you can even be 17 or 18!

NOTE: Please keep in mind the method we use in dating our transcripts.  If you were to graduate at 18, your transcript would show that you have been learning college-level courses since the age of 15.  Make sure to fully count the cost and confirm that a transcript showing you have been receiving college-level education since a young age will work for the purpose you have in mind.

There is no limit to the number of courses that can be completed per day, week, or month.  You are encouraged to progress at whatever speed works best for you and best meets your individual needs.

If TESOL is included in your degree program, you will be qualified to “test-out” and take a final exam in TESOL.

Yes, depending on your English language proficiency.  We have had many students that, despite English not being their mother tongue, have successfully enrolled and graduated from our school.  If you are unsure of your English ability, possibly you could enroll and then if you feel you are encountering difficulties you may request a full refund within the first 60 days.

The grades earned from standard exams will show to your student portal within a minute or two.  Premium exams scores require approval by a staff member from our Academic Department.  Depending on the day of the week or time of day, your Premium Exam may be pending approval and not shown on your student portal for 24 to 48 hours.

Each course is designed around material you already know; therefore, the majority of students quickly scan only those reference materials they feel they may require refreshing on, watch the videos, and then successfully take their final exam. 

We have several friends who are currently earning in excess of $25.00 per hour teaching English online to Chinese students; however, most if not all of these schools require a 4-year degree. 

For those students who received full HESEAP CLC Credit, the average completion time from enrollment to graduation for 2019 was 96 days.

When you login to your student portal, you will see the courses required to complete your degree program.  When you select your course, you will be taken to the course page.  The course page contains a full course description, listing of textbooks and other source materials, and lastly an exam section.  Students review the Textbooks and Other Source Materials as they feel the need, and then they take their exam.  After their exam is complete, if the student is happy with their grade they move on to the next course.  If the student is unhappy with their exam performance, they have the option to take the Premium Exam which is untimed, can be taken 10 times, and costs $39.95 per course.

Some graduates mistakenly comment to other friends, or worse yet prospective employers, that they obtained their degree in just 83 days.  This is not a correct statement and does not convey the actual level of the student’s education or experience.  This degree program consists of a minimum of 4 years in classroom, workshops, personal study and field activities. 

Yes, all USILACS degrees come with an Official Academic Transcript.

Yes and No. Any degrees from Education, Counseling, or Social Science include 120-Hour TESOL Certification; however, Business degrees do not include TESOL Certification.

Yes.  We currently have many students working in the USA with degrees from our school.  We even have one student we are aware of that secured a New York State Teaching license and is currently supporting his volunteer activities by substitute teaching.

No. Although HESEAP Fast-Track Degree Program does include LAN1202 Foreign Language, Intro, this course is focused more toward how to learn a second language, not toward actually learning a foreign language.

As a HESEAP Fast-Tract qualified student, you have already been awarded full classroom learning credits (CLC), and therefore, will only be required to take a final exam in each course.

Students may change their degree program at any time prior to semester 6 for a charge of $150.00.  No degree program changes are allowed after the student has begun semester seven.

Yes, to date our school has over 965 students all over the world. In their respective countries, our degree has been accepted for employment and in many cases, Expert Visa classification.

Yes.  To date and to our current knowledge, we have multiple students in China, Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, Philippines, USA, Mexico, France, and many, many more.  100% of all the degrees we have submitted have Florida State Apostilles, United States Department of State, and Embassy Legalization.  To date we have never had Florida, Washington DC, China, or any other foreign embassies refuse to certify one of our school’s education documents.

ACCREDITATION, AUTHENTICATIONS AND LEGALIZATION (8)

At a minimum we recommend that upon graduation each student have their diploma and transcript apostatized in the State of Florida.  For students who plan to utilize their documents outside the United States of America, we recommend that after the documents have been apostatized by the State of Florida, that the documents also be legalized by the US located embassy of the country in which the student plans to use the documents.

A Bachelor Degree, or as some call an Undergraduate degree, requires 120 credit hours to complete.  It is not a calendar-based degree, but rather credit-hour based.  The time a student takes to complete their Bachelor Degree is totally dependent on how many credit hours a student takes per semester.  Our school uses a full class load, of 12 to 15 credit hours per semester, with three semesters per year.  This method allows our Fast-Track students to graduate in three years as opposed to four.  When you hear or read a reference to a four-year degree, they are referring to a 120-hour undergraduate degree or Bachelor Degree.

Yes, we are an accredited college. Accreditations, Listings and Legal Compliance

The Florida State apostille process takes approximately three weeks, not counting postage or package delivery times. Foreign Embassy Legalization takes approximately 4 weeks, again, not counting postage or package delivery time.

Some graduates mistakenly comment to other friends, or worse yet prospective employers, that they obtained their degree in just 83 days.  This is not a correct statement and does not convey the actual level of the student’s education or experience.  This degree program consists of a minimum of 4 years in classroom, workshops, personal study and field activities. 

Yes. Any alumni student can decide to have their education documents apostilled or legalized at any time after their graduation.  This is not a process that must be completed at graduation.  Should the alumni-student decide to have their education documents apostilled or legalized, all that is necessary is to email our Registrar’s Office at: registrarsoffice@usilacs.org

The Board of Regents is very considerate toward all of their students and is aware of the circumstances they face. Therefore, it is my pleasure to inform you that our school does, in fact, offer several payment plans!  The Split Payment Plan allows the student to pay for half of the tuition at enrollment and the other half any time prior to graduation. SCHOLARSHIPS, DISCOUNTS & PAYMENT PLANS

There have been a few scholarships like you are referring to. Technically they are referred to as scholarships, however, these scholarships were all a direct result of an anonymous donor paying for the student’s tuition. Basically, they are a result of a friend of theirs who wanted to anonymously assist them. SCHOLARSHIPS, DISCOUNTS & PAYMENT PLANS

50% Family Discount Plan: If there is more than one member from the same physical immediate family who wishes to enroll, they can enroll for 50% discount off tuition.  Example: Bob enrolls and pays $2,495.00, then Bob’s daughter enrolls for $1,247.50.  In other words, one person pays the standard tuition and all other members of their physical immediate family can enroll for 50% off tuition; however, all enrollments must occur within 48 hours of each other. Family Discounts must be pre-approved.  Upon approval the USILACS Admission’s Office will issue each additional family member a unique 50% off coupon code.

Our school offers ten accredited Bachelor Degrees.  We offer three degrees in Business, four in Education, one in Counseling, and two in Social Science.  Semester one thru semester six are all exactly the same regardless of which degree you select.  These are considered as either general education or school requirements which each student must complete.  Semesters seven thru nine contain courses specifically selected based upon the student’s degree selection; in addition, each degree within a category i.e. Business, Education, contain very similar courses.  The only exception being a few classes specific to that particular degree program.

The SSG differs from the standard courses in that it is directed to providing up to date information regarding obtaining employment and work-permits needed to legally work or volunteer in China, Thailand, and other countries.

A Bachelor Degree, or as some call an Undergraduate degree, requires 120 credit hours to complete.  It is not a calendar-based degree, but rather credit-hour based.  The time a student takes to complete their Bachelor Degree is totally dependent on how many credit hours a student takes per semester.  Our school uses a full class load, of 12 to 15 credit hours per semester, with three semesters per year.  This method allows our Fast-Track students to graduate in three years as opposed to four.  When you hear or read a reference to a four-year degree, they are referring to a 120-hour undergraduate degree or Bachelor Degree.

VERY Inconsistent.  We have several alumni students teaching at schools in Thailand; however, Thailand is very inconsistent with its enforcement, deciding who can teach and who cannot, as well as deciding what categories of school employees require teaching licenses and which categories do not. You can never predict whether Thailand will approve or deny something.  Our school currently has a high-level delegation working with the Thai government in an attempt to have our school added to Thailand’s approved college list.

We strongly recommend against attempting to obtain a teaching license.  Teaching is a very justifiably controlled profession; therefore, every state, province, and country have their own regulations and requirements to qualify for a teaching license.  We strongly recommend that our students either check with the governing authority where you want to seek licensure in advance or seek employment in a position which does not require a teaching license.  We currently have students, with and without teaching licenses, teaching in traditional and online schools in New York State USA, Hong Kong, Thailand, China, and Australia, just to name a few.

No; however, we strongly recommend that in most cases students be a minimum of 20 years old.  The reason for this recommendation is as follows. The average student in the USA graduates college with a Bachelor Degree between the age of 21-23. However, we must keep in mind that these are the statistics for the average person. There is still the group or percentile of those who attended home-school, graduated high school early due to excelling academically, or attended an online school. Realistically, this means that you can even be 17 or 18!

NOTE: Please keep in mind the method we use in dating our transcripts.  If you were to graduate at say 18, your transcript would show that you have been learning college level courses since the age of 16.  Make sure to fully count the cost and confirm that a transcript showing you have been receiving college level education since a young age will work for the purpose you have in mind.

The SSGs are the only venue in which you can earn the 120-Hour TESOL with Internship. Non-SSG degrees from Education, Counseling, or Social Science include 120-Hour TESOL Certification; however, Business degrees do not include TESOL Certification.  The chief difference being that SSGs students receive a 120-Hour TESOL with Internship, whereas, select non-SSG students receive just a standard 120-Hour TESOL, but without the much-desired Internship.

Yes you can. However, it would be wise to be realistic about your own level of English and whether a heavy accent may cause doubt as to the legitimacy of your abilities.

Yes, depending on your English language proficiency.  We have had many students that, despite English not being their mother tongue, have successfully enrolled and graduated from our school.  If you are unsure of your English ability, possibly you could enroll and then if you feel you are encountering difficulties you may request a full refund within the first 60 days.

We have several friends who are currently earning in excess of $25.00 per hour teaching English online to Chinese students; however, most if not all of these schools require a 4-year degree.

We have several students who have used their degrees to obtain various non-teaching positions successfully. We offer a variety of degrees in different fields; Business is one of them. To date, our students have been able to successfully utilize their degrees to obtain work permits and/or secure employment in various countries around the world. This is the case for our students regardless of whether the degrees were in Business, Counseling, Education, or Social Science.

A Bachelor Degree, or as some call an Undergraduate degree, requires 120 credit hours to complete.  It is not a calendar-based degree, but rather credit-hour based.  The time a student takes to complete their Bachelor Degree is totally dependent on how many credit hours a student takes per semester.  Our school uses a full class load, of 12 to 15 credit hours per semester, with three semesters per year.  This method allows our Fast-Track students to graduate in three years as opposed to four.  When you hear or read a reference to a four-year degree, they are referring to a 120-hour undergraduate degree or Bachelor Degree.

Having a previous TESOL will not reduce the time of your course or tuition; however, it will assist you when you “test-out” on your TESOL required course.

The Board of Regents is very considerate toward all of their students and is aware of the circumstances they face. Therefore, it is my pleasure to inform you that our school does, in fact, offer several payment plans!  The Split Payment Plan allows the student to pay for half of the tuition at enrollment and the other half any time prior to graduation. SCHOLARSHIPS, DISCOUNTS & PAYMENT PLANS

No; however, we strongly recommend that in most cases students be a minimum of 20 years old.  The reason for this recommendation is as follows: The average student in the USA graduates college with a Bachelor Degree between the age of 21-23. However, we must keep in mind that these are the statistics for the average person. There is still the group or percentile of those who attended home-school, graduated high school early due to excelling academically, or attended an online school. Realistically, this means that you can even be 17 or 18!

NOTE: Please keep in mind the method we use in dating our transcripts.  If you were to graduate at 18, your transcript would show that you have been learning college-level courses since the age of 15.  Make sure to fully count the cost and confirm that a transcript showing you have been receiving college-level education since a young age will work for the purpose you have in mind.

50% Family Discount Plan: If there is more than one member from the same physical immediate family who wishes to enroll, they can enroll for 50% discount off tuition.  Example: Bob enrolls and pays $2,495.00, then Bob’s daughter enrolls for $1,247.50.  In other words, one person pays the standard tuition and all other members of their physical immediate family can enroll for 50% off tuition; however, all enrollments must occur within 48 hours of each other. Family Discounts must be pre-approved.  Upon approval the USILACS Admission’s Office will issue each additional family member a unique 50% off coupon code. Students enrolling under the Family Discount Plan are NOT eligible for payment plans and must pay all their tuition and, if applicable, State Apostille fees, at enrollment.

25% Group Discount Plan: Groups of five or more students, who all enroll within 48 hours of each other receive a 25% discount.  Groups must be pre-approved.  Upon approval the USILACS Admission’s Office will issue each group member the appropriate 25% discount coupon code. Students who are enrolling under the Group Discount Plan are NOT eligible for 1. Payment plans (All tuition and State Apostille fees, must be paid in full at enrollment), or 2. cannot be combined with any other coupons or discounts.

MAJORS & MINORS (3)

The subjects and materials pertaining to each available minor are studied in each degree program.  The minor a student chooses has no bearing on the courses required for the degree program.  The choice of a minor is a method for the student to highlight their secondary interest and one which the student feels will most benefit their future career choice.

The minor selection is dependent on what undergraduate degree program you choose.  We offer a vast selection of degree programs and minors to students depending on whether they choose a degree in Business, Education, Counseling or Social Science. This means that if you choose a degree in Business, the minors you have to pick from will be related to business.

TEACHING LICENSES (9)

VERY Inconsistent.  We have several alumni students teaching at schools in Thailand; however, Thailand is very inconsistent with its enforcement, deciding who can teach and who cannot, as well as deciding what categories of school employees require teaching licenses and which categories do not. You can never predict whether Thailand will approve or deny something.  Our school currently has a high-level delegation working with the Thai government in an attempt to have our school added to Thailand’s approved college list.

We strongly recommend against attempting to obtain a teaching license.  Teaching is a very justifiably controlled profession; therefore, every state, province, and country have their own regulations and requirements to qualify for a teaching license.  We strongly recommend that our students either check with the governing authority where you want to seek licensure in advance or seek employment in a position which does not require a teaching license.  We currently have students, with and without teaching licenses, teaching in traditional and online schools in New York State USA, Hong Kong, Thailand, China, and Australia, just to name a few.
