Conditional Admission (ESL + Undergraduate)

Academically eligible students who do not meet the English language proficiency requirements may be granted conditional admission by successfully completing our Intensive English as a Second Language program (IESL). If you score below the minimum required, you will automatically be considered for conditional admission. Applicants who are admitted to our Intensive English as a Second Language program may be eligible to enroll in University level courses with approval from the IESL advisor.
