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."

"ELS is a good place for prepare before you go to college.
And ELS in Denver is a good place for you improve your English skill because
the relationship between teacher and student is like friends. Also you can go
to ski and you can go to see a beautiful view here because every season, the
view is different. The transition between ELS and community college was easy
because it is in the same building and if you have a question, you can go back
to ELS, ask any teacher, and they will help you. The class for research paper
is a good class for you to improve your writing skill because when you get into
the college, you need to write a lot of essays."

"I always liked to be in contact with different cultures (at
ELS) because it helps your perspective as a human being. It helps your English too
because I speak French. Somebody else can speak Chinese, Vietnamese, something
else – Arabic. And it helps us to come together and share our point of view,
and become a better person, better learners… In the regular class (at Community
College), you have a bunch of students around you who have a background in English,
they are American born. You can definitely learn from them. And you don’t have
to be shy, you probably have to open yourself; and this is honestly what
college is about: you need to learn more. So the transition from ELS to the
regular courses was good… The advisors were there for me, they were very
helpful at Front Range Community College… ELS too was very responsive. That was
very helpful, very fast - especially when you have to meet the deadlines."

“This is a good experience for me because ELS is a good
language center, and it’s help me a lot to improve my English… Furthermore, in
ELS there are many sensible activities for us, and when we take these
activities we can learn the American culture and it is easier for you guys to
communicate with American friends when you study in colleges and universities…
I think study in community college is a little bit different with you study in
ELS because you not only study English, you have to study about your major.
But, when you study in ELS, they provide you with the common knowledge before you study in college so you have enough knowledge to study in college. You are not afraid before you study in the college because you have to meet some American classmates and English is their first language.”

Hello, my name is Samantha Cabrera, I'm 18 years old and I'm from Venezuela. I graduated from school last year, my dream has always been to study Graphic Design in the Miami International University of
Art and Design. Now it has become possible due to ELS. 6 months ago I started studying English at ELS in Denver, Colorado. Definitely it was an unforgettable and awesome experience. I stayed there during 5 months, sharing with the awesome people that ELS has, they made me feel at home. The ELS staff were always worried trying to make the students feel happy and comfortable. They planned different kind of activities for our entertainment, at Downtown, mountains, etc. Besides this, Denver is a spectacular city, there are many places to visit and enjoy. This opportunity also allow people to meet and share with other students from different countries and cultures, which to me, was incredible.
