The English Language Program is designed for students whose native language is not English. Its purpose is to bring non-English speaking students to college-level proficiency in speaking, reading and writing English. Students who are accepted into a degree-granting program may earn up to 12 semester hours of liberal arts credit. The Bachelor of Arts foreign language requirement may be fulfilled by completing those intermediate (Level II: ELP 025 ) and advanced (Level III: ELP 031 , 035 , 036 ) courses in the program which are designated for degree credit.

Students placed into the ELP must satisfy the following requirements:

  1. ELP courses as required, based upon the Hofstra ELP Placement Examination and the student’s progress;
  2. Completion of at least four University courses including WSC 001  and any one course from the social sciences.

Students not admitted to a degree program are not eligible to take courses other than the English Language Program courses.
