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!

I could not see myself in other language center. ELS Language Center is great for those who are seeking to learn English for different purpose. As a student of the Center I recommend to anyone because the staff of this Center is built by lovely and friendly people starting from the Center director to the teachers. They will make you have fun while you are learning. ELS Language Center is the best I've ever seen. If you are trying to improve or develop your skills you must take a look at ELS Language Center. I promise you'll not regret it.

ELS teachers helped me to see the strength in my personality, and how to improve my weak points. They have taught me not only English language, but also they gave me the confidence to speak English without fear of making mistakes. To be at ELS inspires me to study hard to be a successful person both at ELS and in TTU in the future.

First of all, I was studying English for 8 months here in north Texas. And once the Lubbock ELS Center comes here, I quickly registered. And then I realized it's a really great place to learn English, and I now regret because I didn't study in ELS Centers for the last 8 months that I studied.
