The U.S.-Sino Pathway Program at Baylor

The US-Sino Pathway Program (USPP) is a multi-component program created by the Consortium of North American Universities (CNAU). Through USPP, students in China are prepared for transition to a bachelor's degree program in one of the high quality US-based consortium institutions. After studying in one of the program centers in China, upon successful completion of the program, USPP students are offered admission to a CNAU member institution without requiring a TOEFL or IELTS score. In USPP, students receive a year of course credits toward a bachelor's degree, comprehensive English preparation, and a supportive learning environment. Students who successfully complete the program will earn 28-33 semester hours of credit before matriculating to their destination institution as sophomore students.

Baylor University offers unique opportunities for Chinese students participating in the USPP. Highly ranked by many national ratings services, Baylor provides a challenging academic environment with very strong business and engineering departments. Baylor's class sizes are small, which means each student receives personal attention from professors and other faculty. We are also the only Christian university participating in the program.

We are proud of our participation in the USPP and our Chinese students. In fact, at Baylor, there are more students from China than from any other country outside the U.S. Our Chinese Students and Scholars Association provides a great deal of support for newcomers as well as established students on campus. Plus, we have a number of programs designed to better the experiences of all international students - helping each one feel at home more quickly, providing interesting activities and making connections with other good people.
