  • Requirements For Exiting the ELI (PDF). Students who wish to enter graduate school at the University of Florida may be interested in exiting (or completing) the English Language Institute and receiving an English language test score (IELTS, MELAB, TOEFL) exemption from the UF Graduate School. The requirements for exiting the ELI include completing all level 60 courses. Students who study in short (7- or 8-week) sessions are ineligible for exiting the ELI as the shorter terms are intended for casual learners, professionals, students with full admission to the university, or as preparation for a long semester. Additionally, the highest sections in a short term do not meet the detailed standards listed and in the Student Guide (PDF).
  • Academic Written English Program. Academic Written English, which began in August 1983, was instituted to meet the academic writing needs of regularly enrolled graduate students who need help with writing in English. In Summer 2008 university-wide budget cuts and policy changes led to significant restructuring of the program and its offerings. Academic Written English (EAP 5845) and Research Writing (EAP 5846) are now being offered as a non-credit course. This course, Scholarly Writing, meets for two six-week sessions.
  • Academic Spoken English Program. In the Academic Spoken English program regularly enrolled international graduate students can take either the credit bearing required ITA course, EAP5836 or non-credit academic spoken English short courses (Formerly EAP5835/EAP5837).
