Undergraduate Students

Fully admitted international undergraduate students at UA who are deemed not to be ready for EN 120, based on IELTS or iBT subscores, are required to take courses at the ELI in oral and/or written skills while they are concurrently enrolled in other undergraduate courses. ELC 110 Undergraduate Academic Speaking and ECL 111 Undergraduate Academic Writing are 3-hour credit-bearing courses.

Graduate Students

The ELI offers two semester-long courses for fully admitted graduate students: Graduate Spoken English and Academic Writing. These two non-credit bearing courses, which are free of charge, are designed to assist graduate students who may be weak in terms of their listening/speaking and writing skills in English. These courses are offered each Fall and Spring semester and meet for 3 hours per week, generally starting at 8:00AM. Interested students should preregister their enrollment for the courses online.
