What is Conditional Admission?

Institutions in the ELS University Conditional Admission Network offer conditional admission to students who are academically admissible based on the student’s academic record and other university and/or departmental and program requirements, but who have not yet demonstrated English proficiency. Your admission is “conditional” based upon satisfying English proficiency through completion of a specified level of the ELS English for Academic Purposes program and any other specific requirements prior to full admission. Once these requirements are fulfilled, you are able to fully matriculate. These requirements will be outlined on your Conditional Letter of Admission, and your selected ELS center will assist you in completing all of the necessary requirements for matriculation.

Additional matriculation requirements may include other required scores, for example, GMAT® or GRE® for graduate programs.

Our ELS University Partners will offer a Conditional Letter of Admission (CLA) detailing the additional requirements needed for matriculation. You and your family can be assured that you have a university placement and ELS registration prior to departing for the USA.

What is the Conditional Admission Process?

  1. Find a university via our University Finder
  2. Apply for university admission and enroll for English studies at ELS Language Centers with help from a local ELS authorized Counseling Agent.
  3. If you are an acceptable candidate for university admission, you receive a letter of "Conditional university admission subject to English proficiency and submission of any other required documentation for matriculation."
  4. Study at any of the 60 ELS Centers in the USA to fulfill the university entrance requirement for English proficiency.
  5. Begin your university program!

Meet the Staff

Kristen Summers

Kristen Summers

Center Director

Hello, my name is Kristen Summers and I am proud to be the Center Director at ELS Language Centers/Cleveland.

I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio and absolutely love it. I hold a Bachelor's and Master's degrees in the field of French Translation from Kent State University. Prior to ELS, I was the Assistant Director of International Recruitment & Admissions for my alma mater, responsible for managing thousands of applications coming each year from around the world.
My previous role in admissions coupled with a nine month study abroad program in Bordeaux, France has provided me a strong base for the many facets of international education. Overall, these professional and personal experiences allow me to better relate with what our students go through when coming stateside.

I am excited to welcome you to ELS/Cleveland and strive to make your experience here memorable, worthwhile and fun!

Annie Steuwe

Annie Steuwe

Academic Director

Hi! My name is Andrea “Annie” Steuwe, and I am the Academic Director at the Cleveland ELS Language Center. I hold a Masters’ Degrees in TESOL, Education, and Biology from University of Heidelberg in Germany. I have taught TESOL at German middle schools for about 5 years before I moved to the USA, where I started working at ELS as an instructor prior to becoming the Academic Director. I was born and raised in Germany, and I love traveling and meeting people from different cultures. A fun fact about me: I am a volunteer horse trainer at a horse rescue farm. I am an outdoor person and enjoy every ray of sunshine I can catch. I am a native speaker of German, and besides English, I understand and to some extent speak French. Not being a native speaker myself, I can truly understand the needs of our students. I look forward to meeting you at ELS Cleveland and to make your experience here memorable and enjoyable!

Maria Oriti

Maria Oriti

International Student Advisor

Hi! I am Maria Oriti and I began working at the ELS center at first as a teacher. I also taught ESL to children and adults in Italy and Spain for 2 years. While abroad, I stayed with host families, travelled as much as I could, and studied new languages. I truly love being in an environment where I can meet people from other cultures and learn from them. As the International Student Advisor, it will be my pleasure to make your experience in Cleveland memorable, positive and lots of fun!

Shelly Lamb

Shelly Lamb

IELTS Administrator

My history with ELS Language Centers dates back to the early 1990s when I was completing my MA in English while teaching at ELS. I enjoyed working with international students back then every bit as much as I do now. After several rewarding years of teaching, I left ELS in order to be a stay-at-home mom to my two wonderful sons, run a business, and even host a foreign exchange student. In 2008, I returned to ELS to teach. I subsequently added the IELTS Administrator role.
Coming back after a hiatus gives me a unique perspective on, and a special appreciation for, ELS and its students!
