Sullivan University will welcome its first academic term of ESLi students to campus in the Fall of 2017. ESLi is a CEA-accredited intensive English language program, whose mission is to improve the English language skills of international students and prepare them for academic success in North American universities. Non-native English-speaking students will have the opportunity to study English through ESLi on the Sullivan University campus, with conditional admission to a Sullivan University degree program. Academically eligible applicants may apply for conditional admission at the undergraduate or graduate level.
Conditionally admitted students will study English as a Second Language courses on a full time basis (25 hours per week) via the ESLi program. The program offers four levels, each one academic term long, ranging from the preparatory up to the pre-university level. When students enroll at ESLi, they take a placement exam to determine which level of instruction is appropriate. ESLi students pay Sullivan University student fees and have access to all University services and events. ESLi is accredited by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA), according to the CEA standards which may be found at: http://www.cea-accredit.org/about-cea/standards
Upon successful completion of the highest level of the ESLi program, conditionally admitted students who have fulfilled all requirements for final admission will be able to enroll at Sullivan University, and begin their degree program of study. Scholarships are available to academically qualified students as they start their degree program at Sullivan University. These are available every academic term.
