English Language Program (ELP)



The English Language Program (ELP) is designed for international students, professionals or those seeking an intensive English experience focusing on reading, writing, and speaking English, as well as an introduction to American culture.

Classes are scheduled in 10-week sessions. In order to maximize the individual attention students receive from their instructors, classroom capacity is between 15-20 students.
