On Tuesday, September 1, Skyline College’s International Student Program (ISP) held a meeting to welcome the fall 2020 group of international students participating in the Global Online Learning (GOL) program. This semester’s group is comprised of nine international students from various countries including China, Japan, and The Netherlands. This welcome meeting provided GOL students with both an opportunity to introduce themselves and to learn more about the ISP staff that they will be working with for the duration of their studies.

The GOL program is a district-wide program that provides international students with the opportunity to take classes through Skyline College, College of San Mateo, or Cañada College while remaining in their home countries. GOL is an excellent opportunity for participants to further their educational goals by earning college credits in a distance education environment. In addition to taking college courses, participating students can save on living expenses while still having access to various campus support services such as the Learning Center and the Library. For more information on the GOL program at Skyline College, please contact the ISP office at (650) 738-7179.
