English As a Second Language (ESL) Requirement

Section 2.6 of the Graduate School Handbook

Upon arrival, an international student from a country where the first language is not English is required to sit for an ESL Composition Placement Essay. Based on the essay result, students needing English writing instruction will be placed in EDU T&L 5901 or 5902. The student is expected to complete EDU T&L 5902 within one calendar year after beginning graduate school. The Graduate Studies Committee in the student’s graduate program may request an extension of the time limit. Such requests must be sent to the Graduate School for review. The Graduate School will monitor the student’s progress toward completing the ESL course sequence.
