English as a Second Language

The ESOL program at USU Eastern is designed to provide an intermediate to advanced level of English as preparation for a traditional college curriculum, employment, or to improve general English skills. Emphasis is on reading, writing, listening, speaking, vocabulary, and grammar.

USU Eastern's ESOL Program begins at an intermediate level of instruction. Intermediate level is defined as: Students scoring between 37 iBT(internet-based test) and 71 iBT on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Students scoring 71 iBT or above can start school in the regular college curriculum. The ESOL curriculum is non-sequential with an open enrollment; therefore, international students may begin Fall or Spring semester. Classes from the regular curriculum are phased in to the student's schedule based on their advisor's recommendation.

International students are required to take ESOL 1030 International Student Orientation during their first semester. A one-time fee of $150.00 is assessed the first semester for all international students.
