Pathways to Universities

Double Degree Partner

Since the general education courses are similar across U.S. institutions, many students in the U.S. opt to begin their first two years at a community college to complete the core courses, then transfer the credits and continue their study in their major of choice at a university.

This makes transferring from a community college such a great option because students who transfer have a higher chance of admission than students who apply directly because universities consider them as university ready. These students have an American accredited transcript with their English language course titles and grades, meaning:

● They may not need to prove English proficiency via a standardized test
● They may not need to take the SAT or ACT

While grades are still important, students also demonstrate that they are already capable of college-level work in English.

Our partner, Broward College , like most community colleges, has established admission agreements with leading U.S. universities so that students can seamlessly transfer all or most of their credits to many prestigious U.S. universities.

Although starting your pathway to a U.S. degree directly in the U.S. is full of uncertainties, Sampoerna Universityhas created the two-year American College in Jakarta in collaboration with Broward College, preparing you to transfer to a leading U.S. university of choice to obtain your Bachelor’s degree.

Transfer 101

Sampoerna University American College collaborates with many academic partner institutions in the United States. Our academic and content provider for SUAC is Broward College---one of the top five colleges in the United States. As a result of this partnership, SUAC is the only educational program in Indonesia where students can earn up to two years of transferable academic credit (the equivalent to the first two years of an American Bachelor’s degree) and then transfer to a top U.S. university, or, alternatively, stay in Indonesia and graduate with an American bachelor’s degree in business or engineering from our American University Content Provider (Louisiana State University) or earn a local degree from Sampoerna University that carries U.S. certification from additional U.S. content providers including Rice University, the University of Illinois, Michigan State University and Arizona State University.

Sampoerna University has partnered with Broward College, located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA, to provide U.S. accredited General Education Curriculum during the first two years of university. This allows students the flexibility to earn up to 60 credits and then transfer to any university in the United States to complete their study in any major they choose. Sampoerna University has over 50 alumni destination universities---many of them ranking in the top 5% in the world. In addition, our Contributing Partner Universities provide financial support for our best students who have proven their academic capabilities and are seeking to transfer.

The 2+2 System

Florida’s higher education system is designed to allow students to successfully pursue a bachelor’s degree by first earning an Associate in Arts (AA) degree at a Florida College System institution and then transferring to a four-year institution. This approach to earning a four-year degree is commonly referred to as the 2+2 system. The state of Florida guarantees that students who complete an AA degree at a Florida college have the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree at a state university or Florida college offering four-year degrees.

Because of SUAC’s partnership with Broward College, SUAC students can take advantage of Florida’s transfer opportunities to institutions within the state that offer bachelor’s degrees.
