MACEE's office has a resource library with undergraduate and graduate college / university catalogs, CDs, applications and resource materials on applying to colleges and universities. TOEFL, GMAT, and GRE, SAT I and SAT II information and registration booklets are also available for students to browse freely. Please contact us for more information on any of MACEE's services, including the Fulbright program, educational advising or testing.

Immigration Procedures for  International Students
All international students are required to possess a student visa. Once a student is accepted, he or she is issued a document (1 -20) to obtain a student visa. Visa applications and advisement are available from MACEE. It is best to have an educational adviser to look over your documentation before applying to the U.S. embassy for the student visa. The MACEE website ( contains detailed information regarding visas, as well as individual forms available for download.

What Does It Cost?
The cost of higher education includes more that just tuition and varies greatly from one institution to another. Attention must be given to housing, transportation, food, books, supplies, health insurance, travel and personal spending. Higher prices are associated with private institutions, as well as with colleges and universities located in major cities and on the East and West coasts of the U.S. A student should plan on a total average comprehensive cost of US $15,000 to $35,000 per year.


Entry Requirements for  International Students
Each institution sets its own standards for admission; however, all international students are required to sit for the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) Exam. It is important to visit the Malaysian-American Commission on Educational Exchange (MACEE) in order to understand the application process and the individual requirements for each institution.

Educational Opportunities and Options

Students at U.S. colleges / universities are able to enroll in a variety of different programs. Some of the opportunities available to international students include work opportunities or internships with U.S. businesses and organizations, taking classes at partner universities, being involved in extra-curricular activities such as swim team, debate team, or the international student club. Extracurricular activities are virtually unlimited, allowing students to explore their interests to the fullest.

Length of Program
Malaysian students who have 5 credits with passes on their SPM results can enter many U.S. colleges / universities. Students with college / university experience {including those holding a three year diploma or completion of a two year American degree transfer program) may apply for admission as transfer students. The number of credits offered will depend on the work completed and is always at the discretion of each college / university. In general, a master's degree takes one to two years to complete, depending on the field of study, while a doctoral degree requires three to five years of study beyond the Master's level.

Grading System
In addition to periodic feedback throughout the academic term, students receive cumulative grade reports at the end of each semester or quarter. Grades are assessed on the basis of all work done, not just on a final examination. Work graded may include any or all of the following: weekly or occasional tests, mid-term examinations, final examinations, research papers or projects, presentations, homework assignments and class participation. No credit is given for a failing grade.

The Academic Year
The academic year at U.S. colleges and universities typically begins in late August or early September and ends in mid to late May. Summer session courses are optional and credits gained during these sessions count towards your degree. Schools on a semester system go for two 15-week terms, followed by a summer session. Those using a quarter system instruct over three ten to eleven week sessions. Regardless of the system in use, all students enrolled full-time spend the same amount of time each year working towards their degrees. It is also usually possible to be admitted to a U.S. school for the second semester, or the second or third quarter (typically called spring enrollment).

Field of  Study

Students can choose from more that 1,000 majors currently being offered at colleges / universities in the U.S. One of the most important benefits is the flexibility of the U.S. system should you decide to change your field of study, which can be done without having to restart your entire program. You may, however, need to take additional course work, depending on the requirements of your new area of specialization. Fields of study popular with Malaysian students are well represented at U.S. schools, such as business, engineering, computer science, and mass communication.


American institutions of higher education are accredited by one of six regional accrediting bodies, depending upon the location of the institutions. These agencies set educational standards for colleges and universities and contribute to the enhancement of operations by requiring compliance with specific standards developed by qualified educators and professionals. It is important to attend a school that is accredited as your own country may not recognize your degree, and you may not be able to transfer your credits to another college or university that has accreditation. Attending an accredited institution of higher education is often viewed favorably by employers, and is always necessary if you plan to transfer academic credits to another institution or attend graduate school.

More than 5,000 Malaysians are currently pursuing degree programs in the United States. For many of them, the decision to leave family and friends to study in the U.S. has been worthwhile.

The United States is home to over 4,100 regionally accredited universities and colleges offering over 1,000 majors. U.S. colleges are known worldwide for the quality of their facilities, resources, and faculty. Accreditation systems ensure that institutions continue to maintain these standards. A U.S. degree offers excellent value for the money. A wide range of tuition fees and living costs, plus some financial help from colleges, have made study in the United States affordable for thousands of students before you.
Students in the United States enjoy flexibility in choice of courses within a college or university, but more importantly there is also the option for students to move between one institution and another. It is quite common for a student to complete the first two years of a degree at one institution, usually a community college, and then move on to another school as his or her academic interests come into focus and mature.

Over 560,000 international students studied in the U.S. in 2005 / 2006. American colleges and universities welcome students from all corners of the globe as foreign students are seen as providers of diversity and international representation.
The United States offers many opportunities for education and personal growth. It is renowned for its excellent institutions of higher learning, research facilities, and is recognized as a leader in many fields, including technology, sciences, engineering, business and the

Colleges and universities in the U.S. are tertiary level institutions. Both colleges and universities offer extensive libraries, research facilities and learning opportunities. Technology and polytechnic institutes offer programs primarily in science and engineering at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
