Our Innovative Gaokao-based, Early Admission Program for Superlative Chinese Students

The University of San Francisco is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our Admission By Gaokao Examination Program for the spring 2021 semester.

Due to the fact that Gaokao exams have been postponed one month later to early July while our fall 2020 semester will start in mid-August, we have decided to move the start semester of Gaokao admits to spring 2021, so that they can have more time to apply for a visa and get ready to start in Jan. 2021.

Students will be admitted to USF based on their Gaokao test scores, school record and a one-on-one English interview with USF professors via Zoom. There are no other admission requirements.

USF President Paul J. Fitzgerald, S.J. explains:

Many studies have shown that the SAT is not a very good predictor of how well students will do at university. We are aware of the many criticisms that have been made of the Gaokao, but it has the advantage of being what educational experts call a 'criterion-referenced' exam: It tests whether students are able to master a given body of knowledge, as well as their ability to work hard and consistently.

USF recognizes this and wants to give excellent Chinese students the opportunity to start their education in the USA immediately, without spending an extra year preparing for the IELTS, TOEFL or SAT tests.

  • Eligible student scores will be established after Gaokao results become available in late July. The interviews will begin around early/middle August and will be held via Zoom.
  • Successful candidates will be able to start their studies in America in Jan. 2021.
  • The admission process will be streamlined so that qualified students will receive their admission decisions within days of their successful personal interviews.

Unfortunately, space is limited. Interested Gaokao students and parents should contact USF immediately to register for the program.
