We have established one of the most extensive university networks to assist students in furthering their studies. International students graduating from International Leadership Academy with a GPA of 2.5 or higher can receive guaranteed acceptance at one of our partnering universities. Students applying to other universities may also receive support from our college counselors.
Our partnering universities include:
University Tuition Benefit:
Upon graduation from ALA, international students who have studied for three or more years at ALA will be qualified to pay residential rather than international tuition at any of Utah’s public universities. For example, if they attend the University of Utah, their tuition will be about $8,000 rather than $25,000 per year. This significant saving will be available to these ALA graduates throughout their undergraduate and graduate school studies in Utah universities as long as they continue their residency in Utah. See Utah House Bill 118 for details.
Students who do well at ALA can be eligible to take university courses through concurrent enrollment or Ed-Net. These courses will give students both university and high school credits. Students who earn sufficient credits may receive their Associate Degree from Utah Valley University when they graduate from ALA and save two years of time in college. Students may also choose to take online classes from Brigham Young University or other institutions.
