English as a Second Language Program
The Office of International Education (OIE) provides advanced English language courses for students of other language backgrounds whose academic success at Marquette requires additional formal instruction in English reading, writing and listening and speaking skills. All students are welcome to take these English language courses although the English Language Placement Test is required to determine appropriate placement. For incoming international students whose evidence of English language ability does not assure adequate proficiency, the English Language Placement Test is mandatory and the results are used to assign students to appropriate courses. English language (ESLP) courses are offered in both the fall and spring terms. There are also sections of ENGL 1001 Foundations in Rhetoric designated for ESLP students. Up to six credits of ESLP course work may be counted toward degree requirements in all undergraduate colleges except Engineering.
