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.
Saint Martin’s University's English as a second language (ESL) courses are designed to improve the English language skills of international students for the purpose of matriculating into Saint Martin’s University.
The ESL curriculum is divided into two course subtypes:
- English language skills
- Culture-based content
ESL levels one, two, and three will generally be offered both fall and spring semesters.
ESL level four may or may not be offered, depending on enrollment.
No required TOEFL score is necessary for entry into the program, however, it does help with accurate placement of the student if it is available. TOEFL exams are offered at the beginning and end of each semester.
Matriculating ESL students in level four, with a TOEFL score over 480, may take a combination of ESL and regular undergraduate courses. Students with scores of 525 on the institutional paper- based TOEFL and above, are eligible for full-time undergraduate study at Saint Martin’s.
