Instructor-Led Classes & Test Prep for a World-Class International Education

Study in the U.S.A.!

Coastal Education Institute will help you complete your general education courses faster and at a substantially lower cost. Credits earned in this manner are recognized the same as those college credits earned over longer periods of time in a traditional classroom. This allows the international student to complete general courses faster and move on to his/her major subject of study sooner.

Over 800,000 international students now study in the U.S.A., making it the world's largest international student population, and represent almost 4% of all higher education students in America. Being the most popular country for international study, the United States of America provides academic excellence, flexibility, cutting edge technology, and a variety of educational options. For these reasons and many more, academic credentials earned in the U.S. are recognized and respected worldwide. Expand your cultural, academic, and professional horizons while enjoying the hospitality you'll experience in this flexible learning environment.

Why Choose Coastal Education Institute?

There is no other program in the United States of America that offers this opportunity with the success that Coastal students experience. You will study in tropical south Florida, one of the most beautiful and culturally diverse regions of the country.

While quickly acquiring college credits, we encourage each student to take advantage of what this paradise has to offer. You're just minutes from world famous, historic Ft Lauderdale Beach, and just a short drive to many unforgettable adventures such as visiting Walt Disney World, touring the Kennedy Space Center, surfing the Atlantic, diving the coral reefs in Pompano Beach, or experiencing the Florida everglades on an airboat safari.

Enjoy this unique educational program while preparing to complete your college training at your choice of hundreds of U.S. colleges and universities.

How it Works

  1. Identify which school you wish to attend, and which required classes may be tested out of for your degree choice. Coastal can help you with this process.
  2. The student will enroll with Coastal for general education classes required by the college for the degree of choice. Classes may be completed in less than 1 year while in the U.S. on a tourist visa!
  3. Classes are typically completed in 4 to 6 weeks followed by a single multiple choice exam. 1 to 4 classes may be completed simultaneously. The typical U.S. college or university requires attendance twice a week for up to 17 weeks per course, versus the Coastal program that requires attendance only once per week for a short 4 to 6 weeks. Following completion of these accelerated courses and successful completion of course exams, you may store course credits earned in a bank until you complete the enrollment process in your chosen college or university. Following enrollment at the college of choice, all test scores are then transferred into the college for awards of credits toward graduation.


Credit-by-Exam, also referred to as "testing-out" of a college subject, allows students to demonstrate comprehensive knowledge of a course without actually attending required classes. This is accomplished by passing a single "college level examination" or "College Proficiency Exam," which with few exceptions, is simply a timed multiple choice exam.

US Colleges and Accreditation

Colleges and universities in the U.S. are licensed by the U.S. Department of Education. It is important to understand that just because a school is licensed, it is not necessarily accredited. Most schools recognize the importance of accreditation as a means of verifying high academic standards. While some schools maintain national, and specialized or professional accreditation, it is generally accepted that "Regional Accreditation" is the gold standard in terms of quality and broad acceptance of credits by other schools.

Examples of Regionally Accredited USA schools include:

  • California State University
  • Pepperdine University
  • University of Alabama
  • University of North Carolina
  • Syracuse University
  • Indiana University
  • Baylor University
  • UCLA (University of California - Los Angeles)
  • Loyola University
  • Boston University
  • Rochester Institute of Technology
  • Ohio State University
