Academic Support Program

The ELI Academic Support Program provides opportunities for UA undergraduate and graduate students who may want or need additional English-language instruction. At the undergraduate level, newly admitted international students, after taking the UA English Proficiency and Placement Exam (EPPE) prior to beginning their first semester at UA, may be asked to take one or two ELI courses in spoken and/or written English on a part-time basis. These students may pursue their academic studies while fulfilling their EPPE requirements. Students must pass the designated ELI Speaking/Listening or Academic Writing course(s) before enrolling in the University’s required English courses for credit. In addition, the UA Language Resource Center is available for individualized language assistance.

To obtain more information about any of the above ELI programs, to request a brochure and application for the Intensive English Program, or to discuss the possibility of an external program for your group, contact the University of Alabama English Language Institute, Box 870250, Tuscaloosa, AL 35487-0250; (205) 348-7413; fax (205) 348-9266; e-mail Also please visit our Web site at
