Intensive English for Graduates

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

The intensive program for graduate students offers ELIN 120 (intermediate) and ELIN 121 (advanced). Students are placed in one of the two levels according to their scores on the TOEFL with TWE.

Content of Courses

Students are placed in sections normally comprised of up to fifteen students. Students are given a grammar review, extensive reading and writing practice, advanced vocabulary review, and practice in speaking and listening comprehension. Grading in this course is on a Pass/Fail system.


Attendance and participation are considered so important to this intensive language program that a student who for any reason misses the equivalent of more than 21 class hours in any one semester will be asked to withdraw.  Applicants for readmission may submit a TOEFL (plus TWE) score. If their score is the intensive level, they will be allowed to return to ELIN 120 or 121. Students who are asked to withdraw but fail to do so will be suspended.

Suspension and Readmission

Graduate students suspended from ELIN 120 or 121 must petition for readmission and must meet all the admission requirements prevailing at the time of readmission. Readmission is not granted automatically. Students suspended from ELIN 120 or 121 who are readmitted to the university must score high enough on the TOEFL (plus TWE) for direct admission to Academic English for Graduates or higher, as they will not be allowed to return to ELIN 120 or 121.
