PURPOSE
The English Language Institute (ELI) offers an intense four-level Academic English Program (AEP) for students with limited English language proficiency to prepare them for both undergraduate and graduate academic work at English-speaking academic institutions Students may enter the AEP in the Fall, Spring or Summer term.  In levels III and IV of the AEP (during the Fall and Spring terms), students have the option to begin undergraduate coursework alongside their AEP classes.  Students completing level IV of the AEP are not required to submit a TOEFL score for acceptance into Liberty University’s undergraduate program.  Students entering Liberty University’s graduate programs are still required to submit the minimum TOEFL score for acceptance.

The ELI also provides language support for local business, religious and other professionals whose native language is not English. 

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES

  1. Produce grammatical, comprehensible English in spoken and written form.  
  2. Demonstrate reading and listening proficiency in both academic and everyday contexts.        
  3. Synthesize an understanding of the language learning process and personal educational goals.
