The New Curriculum

The English Language Institute has revised its class schedule and curriculum. Starting this summer, ELI will offer five eight-week sessions each year: two during the fall, two during the spring, and one in the summer. Each session will include complete courses in Grammar, Reading, Writing, and Listening/Note Taking. Each course will be offered at five undergraduate levels and one graduate level. This new approach will provide students with greater scheduling flexibility and the opportunity to complete the program sooner. 

 Each student will take the institutional TOEFL test (ITP) as an entrance assessment, and be placed as indicated in the following table. No other test will be accepted for admission to ELI.

Level 1 ITP Score of 333-353 undergraduate
Level 2 ITP Score of 357-383 undergraduate
Level 3 ITP Score of 387-417 undergraduate
Level 4 ITP Score of 420-447 undergraduate
Level 5 ITP Score of 450-497 undergraduate
Level 6 ITP Score of 500-547 graduate

Note: Graduate students who do not score 500 or above on the ITP, will begin in the  undergraduate level associated with their score.
