English Language Program

About the ELP

The ELP at Rowan University is a university intensive academic English program for international and local immigrant students, and our primary goal is to prepare students for university success.

This program has had a history of over 50 years helping students from non-English speaking countries all over the world and have had great careers in the U.S. and other countries.

The ELP has five levels: Level 1 (Low Beginner), Level 2 (High Beginner), Level 3 (Low Intermediate), Level 4 (High Intermediate) and Level 5 (Advanced). After taking the placement test, you will be placed in the level that best suits your knowledge of the English language.

Classes run on the regular University semester schedule; Monday-Thursday 9:00am-3:00pm. Fall and Spring semesters are 14 weeks in length, and the Summer  semester is 13 weeks.

Class topics include:

  • Academic Reading
  • Academic Writing
  • Listening & Speaking/Pronunciation
  • Oral Presentations
  • Grammar
If you successfully complete the Advanced Level (Level 5) with a minimum GPA of 3.0, you DO NOT need to take the TOEFL or IELTS for university admission into undergraduate and graduate degrees of study.
