Comprehensive and customized programs and services for your campus

ELS programs are a collaborative venture between your university and ELS. Our part of the partnership begins with supporting your international enrollment management efforts from helping you expand your institutional brand presence to identifying and preparing degree-seeking students for integration and full matriculation into your university.

When we work together, you will be fully prepared for a growing population of multilingual and multicultural students.

Pathway Programs for Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Pathway programs seamlessly transition international students from their home country to their new learning environment. We combine credit-bearing courses from the first year of each student’s degree program with courses that will:

  • Further develop fluency in English
  • Help with acculturation in a new American academic environment
  • Support learning through ELS-provided services

We have two options for working together with Pathway Programs:

  • For undergraduate students – The International First Year Pathway Program
  • For graduate students – The International Master’s Pathway Program

ELS Intensive English Program on Your Campus

When you host an ELS Center, your institution reaps many benefits including exposure across the globe via print, online, and in-country representation.

An on-campus ELS Center increases diversity on your campus, enriching the educational experience for domestic students and serving as a link for international students to your university. Conditionally-admitted students who complete the ELS program on your campus are more likely to matriculate than accepted internationals at large.

What’s more, increase your visibility to international students who are already in the country when they come to your ELS Center to take the official TOEFL® iBT or IELTS exams.
