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!

ELS has great teachers. They have nice computers to help students study. Actually, they do more activities every month that students like because students can meet each other outside the school and they meet other people from the U.S. to practice their English.

I really enjoy studying at ELS. At this facility, I can improve my English and make a lot of friends from all over the world. ELS is a gate; through the gate, I can see a different and more colorful world!

Students in other countries should choose ELS Indianapolis as their location to study. The school is located in the heart of downtown Indy, only a few steps away from the main attractions that the Hoosier State has to offer. In addition, Indianapolis is a great size if you want to really experience the American way of life. Studying here has been pleasant. The atmosphere is positive, the teachers are very professional, and the academic team at ELS makes the students feel at home.

My favorite extra activity that ELS provides is The Language Exchange Lunch. We meet different Americans and make friends. We learn about different cultures. Going to extra activities outside of school is really good and important. We improve our listening and speaking skills without thinking we are practicing.
