English Language Support Program

The English Language Support Program serves the University of Missouri by assessing the English language proficiency of MU’s international undergraduate students and providing English language courses to assist students in the pursuit of their academic studies.

The ELSP implements the policy approved by the Council of Deans in 1980 requiring on-campus English language testing of all incoming international undergraduate students for whom English is not a native language and enrollment in English language courses as needed. The program also accommodates individual graduate students, visiting scholars and international staff interested in English language assessment and language training.
