English Language Institute (ELI)

If English is not your native language, you may need specialized English coursework in order to achieve your academic and professional goals. NYIT's English Language Institute (ELI) can help. We offer every level of English instruction and will prepare you for your future.

Our non-credit classes include:

  • Reading, writing, listening comprehension, and speaking.
  • Graduate-level English courses aligned to academic majors.
  • Cultural and social activities.
  • Small class sizes with no more than 18 students.
  • Blended classes with technology-enabled and in-class learning.
  • An English language learning portfolio to document your language development.

We are authorized under federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students and to issue I-20 forms for student visas and DS2019 for J-1 students.
