English as a Second Language program
Saint Martin's University offers an intensive ESL program for students who
are academically qualified to attend Saint Martin's, but lack the required
TOEFL score. The program offers college preparatory courses for students
from the beginning to advanced level.
NOTE: Students applying to the intensive ESL program must meet all Saint
Martin's University admission requirements with the exception of the TOEFL
Students accepted to the intensive ESL program may be granted conditional
admission to the University. They are expected to complete their ESL study
within an 18 month period. Any extension beyond 18 months will require special
permission from the program director.
Students who have achieved TOEFL scores between 480 and 524 may enter with
concurrent status and are allowed to enroll in one or two regular courses in
addition to ESL courses. A student may fully enroll in regular courses once a
525 or better TOEFL score has been achieved.
NOTE: The Saint Martin's ESL program has a "late start" spring semester
in order to match better with Asian academic calendars.
