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?
- Find a university via our University Finder
- Apply for university admission and enroll for English studies at ELS Language Centers with help from a local ELS authorized Counseling Agent.
- 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."
- Study at any of the 60 ELS Centers in the USA to fulfill the university entrance requirement for English proficiency.
- Begin your university program!
Meet the Staff
Welcome to the City of Festivals! My name is Lori Bares and I am the Center Director at the Milwaukee ELS Center located on the Marquette University campus. I started at ELS Milwaukee in February 2013. I come to ELS with a background in Business and Education. My professional background includes organizational management, training and instruction. My position at ELS allows me to bring all those areas together to provide a quality program for our students. I was born and raised in Wisconsin. I lived in four other states, but now call Wisconsin home. Milwaukee is a great place to enjoy all four seasons, from taking a Fall hike, skiing in the winter, gardening in the Spring and enjoying Summer Fest at the Lakeside. At ELS Milwaukee, we believe learning does not end in the classroom. We assist our students with many resources so they can understand and learn the culture in Milwaukee. I am looking forward to working with your students at ELS Milwaukee!
Assistant Academic Director
Hi! I joined ELS Milwaukee with five years of teaching experience in ESL and Spanish. My education includes a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Religious Studies as well as a Masters’ in Curriculum and instruction with emphasis in ESL and Bilingual Education. I was born and raised in the Milwaukee area, but have lived in Spain, Chile, and Denver, Colorado. I enjoy discovering new and interesting places, discussing current events, listening to different types of music, and spending time with my friends and family. Teaching ESL continues to be my passion. I really enjoy working with international students from all over the world and am fortunate to work in an environment that puts me in contact with so many wonderful people!
International Student Advisor
I am very excited to be a part of such a wonderful and passionate group at ELS Milwaukee. In the past four years I have traveled all over East Asia and even lived in Shanxi, China where I taught English as a foreign language. Currently, I am studying for a Masters in Applied Linguistics and TESOL with the University of Portsmouth, England via their distance learning program. It is my hope that my passions for working with people and my experience working with students from around the world will help make students
at ELS Milwaukee feel welcome and find a home away from home.
When I am not working or studying, I love to cook and go out for coffee with my friends. In the summer you can find me riding my bike around the city and spending time by beautiful Lake Michigan. Milwaukee is fortunate
to be so close to the lake, the people here are truly proud of it!
Violeta came to the United States from her native Lithuania 10 years ago. She studied English and secured a job at Berlitz in Milwaukee. She joined ELS Milwaukee in the spring of 2012 as registrar and brings an personal understanding of the challenges our students encounter coming to the United States to learn English. She truly enjoys the interaction she has with our students and helping them adjust to life in Milwaukee.
I am originally from China where I attended college at Tsinghua University in Beijing and received my bachelor degree in Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies. I came to the United States five years ago in pursuit of a master degree in Communication. After receiving my MA degree from Washington State University, I worked at Wisconsin Lutheran College as an international enrollment counselor and grew passionate about international education. I like working with international students because I understand the challenges they go through. It is also a great opportunity for me to apply my intercultural experience in helping others.
