Welcome to the English Language Program (ELP). SVSU's ELP focuses on developing students' English proficiency in reading, listening, writing, and speaking. International students who study in the ELP at SVSU have the opportunity to interact with students and faculty from the United States and around the world. ELP students experience U.S. culture while learning on a beautiful, modern campus that offers state-of-the-art facilities. ELP Students also have access to cultural and athletic programs available to all SVSU students.
Satisfactory completion of the ELP allows students to matriculate into traditional academic programs leading to an undergraduate degree.
During the academic year, full-time students are required to be in class at least 18 hours each week. ELP classes are small which allows students to receive individualized attention.
