It is the responsibility of all students enrolled in the ELI to meet the academic requirements set forth by the program. Students should anticipate 2.5 hours of course meeting per course each well as well as additional assignments to be completed outside of class. All students should have skills or work to develop skills in intentional time management, positive study habits, and organization. As this is an intensive English language program, students should be prepared to meet this workload.


Students are required to attend all course meetings and arrive on time for the beginning of the session. It is the responsibility of the student to contact the professor prior to the missed class to ask for work. In the event of an emergency, it is the responsibility to contact the professor as soon as possible. If you fail to notify the professor prior to the class meeting, the Director of the ELI will be alerted.
