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!

Abigail Bruhlmann

Academic Director

Having grown up in New York to Swiss parents, Abigail has always been interested in the connection between language and culture. She graduated from Bryn Mawr College in 2006 with BA degrees in Anthropology and German and complemented her education by studying abroad for two semesters in Freiburg, Germany. After a fascinating year working in the museum field, Abigail decided to switch her professional focus to language and spent two years teaching English in Quito, Ecuador after earning her TESOL certificate from SIT World Learning. Upon returning to the United States, Abigail continued teaching and received her MA degree in Applied Linguistics from Teachers College, Columbia University. From August 2013-June 2014, Abigail served as an English Language Fellow in Panama City, Panama where she concentrated on teacher training. Abigail is thrilled to be part of the ELS Atlantic City team and is looking forward to nurturing a spirit of community together with the staff and students. Her door is always open for students who have questions regarding their academic program, teachers looking for guidance, or anyone else who just wants to stop in and say hello. In her free time, Abigail enjoys visiting museums, taking walks, traveling, and collaging.

ELS Atlantic City is a great center which I extremely recommend. Teachers here are pretty nice. They will help you with whatever you want. The most important thing is they also care about your life and try their best for you. Especially as a foreign student, we have lots of things to learn and they will help you a lot. Also, the center is located in a university where you will make American friends to help you improve your English!

In the beginning back there in October, I fully had a hard time to be understood and understand, too. However, I did not give up and I kept on working very hard so as to build my English skills up. I made it fly, and due to my teachers' help, I was able to improve a lot. I appreciated the time that I spent here, and lovely people that I met from all over the world. I had a great experience at ELS, and I would be glad to recommend this program for those who want to improve their English as well. Thanks a million!

ELS Atlantic City is an amazing place to learn English. I love this place because I could practice a lot of my speaking with natives and also I met a lot of friends from different nationalities. This center is located close to New York, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C., and I went to a lot of beautiful places.
