Courses - English Language Institute


 The English Language Institute at NYIT has five levels.  The lowest level is for students who have little to no basic English skills.  The other four levels are aimed at improving your English for academic purposes. 

Placement into these level is based on your IELTS or TOEFL examination scores.  If you have not taken either of these examinations, you will take the ACT Compass examination upon your admission to our program.  IELTS or TOEFL scores are not necessary for admission into the ELI.  However, IELTS or TOEFL scores are necessary for admission to a degree program at NYIT.
