The English as an International Language program, commonly known as “EIL,” is provided for non-native speakers of English to improve their English skills. The program consists of courses in the areas of Listening & Speaking, Writing, and Reading. Students are tested and can be recommended for two levels of courses, either Intermediate or Academic English. Students who test and demonstrate higher English skills may move directly into GE and major courses. Upon completion of the EIL courses, students are better prepared to be successful in their university studies as a result of improved English skills.
