LCI English Center is dedicated to making it easier to study in the U.S. LCI is working with institutions in Colorado and across the US to improve access to U.S. institutions. LCI has formed and manages a collection of schools called The Colorado Consortium
The Colorado Consortium is a collection of six higher education institutions in Colorado that are dedicated to enabling international students to study in the beautiful State of Colorado. LCI English Center is the official ESL provider of the consortium.
The Colorado Consortium members strive to make the international admissions process easier by offering conditional admission letters, along with a waiver of the TOEFL upon completion of LCI’s Academic English Program. Conditional Admission Letters often make the visa process easier, and a TOEFL waiver guarantees the student’s ability to start at the university upon completion of the student’s English studies.
The consortium’s universities include:
University of Colorado in Colorado Springs
UCCS is located in Colorado Springs, which is a 50 minute drive from Denver. UCCS is ranked by US News and World Report as #32, Universities – Master's (West), which is a very strong ranking! The parent university, University of Colorado in Boulder, is ranked nationally as #77 for national universities. UCCS offers bachelors, masters and PhDs. UCCS also has an excellent engineering college.
Regis University's College of Professional Studies
Regis University in Denver is one of Colorado's best-kept secrets. Regis is ranked by U.S. News and World Report as #28 Universities – Master's (West), yet has fewer than 50 international students! The Regis College of Professional Studies offers seven master's degrees in computer science and four computer science bachelor's degrees, as well as three business master's degrees (including MBAs) and seven business bachelor's degrees.
