Typically, students will complete one level of EIL courses each term or semester. The final exams in these courses will determine if the student is ready to move to the next level, or if additional time is needed to improve. Once students have progressed through the Intermediate and Academic English levels of EIL courses, they are ready to register for GE and major classes. Depending on a student’s initial placement, time spent in EIL can be minimal (one enrollment) or longer (several enrollments). Progression is determined by the student’s work, tests, and the final exam in each course.
