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!

Miami student interview

March 14, 2012

Cleyton Kano, Brazil

March 22, 2010

Hi, my name is Cleyton Kano, I'm from São Paulo, Brazil. I went in December of 2009 and studied until Beginning of 2010. I stayed there just a month, and studied at level 7. And everything in Miami was so amazing. I had the great opportunity to live the Christmas season, through Christmas Carol, that was awesome. And lots of experience I could learn during this trip. And also, I made some new friends that will last forever. The institution presents excellent teachers with lots of experience and dynamic methods that makes it easier to learn. Thus I could improve all four essential skills to an effective communication: the audition comprehension, reading, speaking and written. Remember, a foreign experience is something that makes a difference as professional, personal and academic. And if you want to study abroad, you can trust in ELS, they are very organized and take care of many things. So good luck and don't forget, enjoy the maximum of each moment, each experience and you must be disciplined in studies and do your best. And thanks to all my friends that I made at ELS. And here I finalize wishing a good luck to everybody who will study abroad.

Eriko Shimazu, Japan

September 17, 2009

My name is Eriko Shimazu. I am from Japan. When I came here I was in level 5; now I am in level 9. Now I am very independent, I can express mysel. I have learned lots of information from people from other countries. I am very happy with the classes; my teachers make sure our grammar is clear. In Japan, I learned English, now I know English. The classes are serious, fun, and exciting.

The weather here is amazing. The nightlife is the best in the world. The beach, the restaurants, the stores, and nightclubs are all awesome. Come to ELS/Miami, you’ll love it
