Program for Academic Credit
Our courses are designed to prepare you to enter the academic program of your choice, as soon as possible. You will obtain the English skills and knowledge you need, while earning valuable college credit.
Each EIL student at Park receives individual advising. There are no required courses: you will be guided towards the classes appropriate for your needs, based on test results, one-on-one consultation with the Program Coordinator, and teacher recommendations (once you are in the program).
As soon as you, in consultation with your EIL advisor, feel comfortable to do so, we encourage you to take regular college courses, even in your first semester. EIL at Park University works with the Academic Support Center to provide tutoring and mentoring assistance. When you have graduated from EIL, this support will continue, as long as necessary.
Highly Qualified, Experienced Instructors
All of our faculty have advanced degrees in Linguistics and/or ESOL. Most have lived and taught English abroad, as well as in the United States. If you want creative, competent and caring teachers, you've come to the right place.
Park Supports Diversity: Park has always been renowned for its appeal to students from all over the world. We are proud to welcome students from over a hundred different countries. You may share the classroom with someone from Uzbekistan, Brazil, Thailand, or Nepal! Park celebrates diversity in numerous events such as International Week, the Coming to America speaking series, and so on. Our Office of International Students organizes several interesting and exciting activities throughout the year, most of which are free. The World Student Union also provides a venue in which students from all over the world get together for fun, support, and personal growth.
