Message from the President

Welcome to Advanced College

Dr. Lida Mansourian, President On behalf of Advanced College (AC), I wish to extend to you our warmest welcome to the United States and to California.

Advanced College offers a lot of educational opportunities for you. What makes Advanced College the right choice? Whether you are a recent high school graduate or looking for a fresh career path or even living in another country and want to have an opportunity to take some of the courses on-line at your native home and apply for F-1 or M-1 visa to be able to finish the last year of your education at U.S.A or have the option to take the whole program here in the U.S., Advanced College could help you fulfill this dream..

With AC Associate Degree (On-line) Programs, you can combine livelearning with convenient recorded sessions. Our instructors are highly qualified in their own field of specialization.

We are very pleased that you have chosen this college to be your “home” for the next few years.

We are here to help you in your personal, academic, and cultural transition to the U.S. college environment.

It is our hope that this handbook will provide you with some helpful tips while living in the United States of America. I feel confident that you will find it a useful resource as an international student. Again, please let us know how we can assist you during your stay at Advanced College, and I look forward to getting to know you.


Dr. Lida Mansourian
