While the English Language Institute offers the master’s and diploma programs in TEFL as described under “Fields of Study,” the institute was founded in 1956 to offer intensive English language courses in its Intensive English Program (IEP) to prepare non-native speakers of English for study at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the university. In addition, the institute offers English 100, Academic English for Freshmen, which serves as a bridge between the IEP and the Rhetoric and Composition.
While the English Language Institute now offers masters and diploma programs in TEFL as described under “Fields of Study,” the institute was originally founded in 1956 to offer intensive English language courses in its intensive English program to prepare non-native speakers of English for study at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the university.
Graduate students who are otherwise qualified to enter the university but whose English does not meet the necessary level of proficiency, based on the applicant’s performance on the TOEFL with TWE, will be admitted to ELIN 120 or 121, or placed in the appropriate modules of ENGL 123-125.
Graduate students in the intensive ELIN 120 and 121 courses are allowed a maximum of two semesters and a summer (or three semesters if no summer session is offered) to reach the level of Academic English for Graduates (see Academic English for Graduates in this section).
