Keep your education on track and enjoy campus life
What is the Alternative Spring Program (ASP)?
The Alternative Spring Program (ASP) is provided by G-MEO to address the needs of Chinese international students enrolled in universities in the US but currently located in China. The ASP program puts Chinese international students in an English language US-style learning environment and keeps their education plans on track.
The program also provides US universities and colleges with a suitable venue in China to launch their Overseas Spring Semester Program. This is due to the possibility that the current travel restrictions between the US and China may not be removed in time for students to secure their visas and book limited flights to the US in time to start their Spring semester.
The ASP is developed with one of the top US-accredited universities in New Jersey, Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU). Upon completion of the ASP, FDU will issue each student an official transcript with 100% credit transferability, keeping all students on track to complete their education. Students can look forward to taking advantage of FDU’s valuable contributions.
