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!

Center Director

Welcome to Nashville, otherwise known as "Music City"! I have enjoyed working with international students for 10 years, and have been fortunate to meet so many smart, warm, and interesting people! Having traveled and lived overseas myself, I have struggled with many of the challenges our students face living in a "strange" place and learning a new language. Nashville is a great place to study and explore. The people are friendly, there is lots of great music, and you cannot beat the cost of living!

Academic Director

I am originally from Azerbaijan, Baku. I speak Azerbaijani, English, Russian, and Turkish fluently and understand Persian. I have taught ESL for twenty years. As a language student and teacher, I am well aware of the problems that language learners face. I am especially sensitive to the practical aspects of using the English language in everyday life. As Academic Director of the Nashville ELS Center, I am delighted to be participating in the creation of a high-quality academic program and working with professional staff, experienced teachers, and motivated students. Our center is an enjoyable place to learn English and will meet high standards we have set ourselves from the start. Come and explore the world of English in Nashville!
