The ELAP is a test to assess students' academic English proficiency in the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. The test is administered during orientation. Results from the ELAP will determine possible placement in EIS (English for International Students) courses. EIS courses are credit courses and not part of an Intensive English Program.
Please visit Intensive English Program ELAP for more information.
