English as a Second Language Preparatory Program

Centennial Campus • F-200 • 502-3535

The English Language Institute (ELI) is located at the Centennial Campus. It is a semi-intensive English as Second Language program, designed to meet the needs of non-native English speakers. The ELI serves students who wish to improve their English reading, writing, and speaking skills. Many ELI students plan to attend an American college or university or need to improve their English skills for the workplace.

Any student who is interested in taking ELI courses must take the ELI placement exam. Non-native speakers of English whose placement level is below CCR 092 or ENG 090 should take the ELI placement exam and be advised by the English Language Institute.

The English Language Institute has three levels of study: basic, intermediate, and advanced. Courses in the ELI include grammar, pronunciation, composition, reading, and conversation. Full-time students may complete coursework in the ELI in three semesters.
