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

I have lived nearly half my life outside of the United States. When I was young, I lived in Belgium for 7 years with my mother, older sister and younger brother. I learned to speak French and play soccer there. I went to High School and College in Maryland before moving to California. While in California, I became interested in Japanese food, culture, and the language. Eventually, I went to Japan to teach English there. I worked and lived in Hiroshima for nearly 14 years. I have many hobbies, such as cooking (and eating) foods from many different countries. I also like to watch English Premiere League soccer matches on TV and travel when I find the time.

Academic Director

I have taught English in places that are unknown to many people. While studying for my bachelor’s degree in English at Oklahoma Baptist University, I spent a year teaching at XinJiang University in Urumqi, China. After completing my degree, I studied for my master’s at Oklahoma State University. When I finished my degree, I started teaching ESL here in Oklahoma. A few years later, my family and I moved to Almaty, Kazakhstan where I taught English at a university. I traveled to much of Central Asia including my first Asian home, Urumqi. Returning to the US, I am serving both students and teachers at ELS. I enjoy spending time with my wife and two boys, reading philosophy, meeting people from all over the world, and taking every opportunity to travel.

International Student Advisor

I graduated from Oklahoma State University in 2010 with a Degree in Child & Family Services. During my time in college I spent a semester studying on the little Island of Malta and had the opportunity to travel to a variety of countries in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. I love being around people from other cultures and after being an international student at one time, I realize the need for help when studying abroad. My position at ELS is giving me an opportunity to do both!

IELTS Administrator

I graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University in 2012 with a degree in English, History, and Intercultural Studies. Upon my graduation, I concluded a 16 year career of playing baseball. My baseball endeavors gave me the opportunity to play all over the United States, including Niagara Falls for two summers. Although I have not yet traveled extensively outside of the United States, I enjoy learning about and experiencing new cultures. Some of my hobbies include: hunting, fishing, playing guitar, writing, cooking, home improvement projects, and drinking hot tea with my wife.

Jamil just graduated from level 112 at ELS!

"After I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Engineering,
one of the biggest companies in Saudi Arabia called me to have an interview with them. I was happy and excited to
get a job! While we were having the interview, I answered all of the questions perfectly in Arabic. They were very happy and my
smile was getting bigger and bigger! …Until he said “now speak English”. I knew at that time I was in trouble…I said “no
English”, he said “Sorry, you are an Engineer, you must speak English…we cannot accept you”. So I came to the United
States, to ELS in Oklahoma to learn English.
Now, finally, I am an Engineer who speaks English very well!"

Hi guys, my name is Mohamad, I am from Saudi Arabia I chose
to come to Oklahoma because it is a cheap state and it has the best school in the United States. I am so happy, I just
graduated from ELS and I got the acceptance letter from the University of Tulsa! Really, it’s good advice for you to come to
Oklahoma. ELS has the best teachers and
the will help you with everything you want.
