History & Development of IGU

In 2008, Dr. Sohn founded IGlobal University to provide the most innovative and effective education to people around the world, without sacrificing affordability.

To achieve his founding vision, he established a few strategic goals with important milestones, including:  


  • Accreditation from ACCSC

  • Student and Exchange Visitor Program (ICE SEVP) certification from the Department of Homeland Security

  • J-1 (exchange visitor) Program approval from the Department of State

  • Title IV Federal Student Aid Program approval from the Department of Education.


Since IGU was founded, we are proud to say that we have accomplished these goals and are continuously working to grow and exceed Dr. Sohn’s dream of accessible education for everyone.
