Graduate/Advanced University Track

Program Description

CESL's Graduate/Advanced University Track Program at the University of Arizona provides graduate-bound students and some undergraduate-bound students with advanced-level English courses, which are specifically designed to prepare students for graduate or undergraduate studies. In addition to their ESL courses, students in the Graduate/Advanced U-track sit in on a UA graduate course in their intended field of study (with department approval) or in a general education course for undergrads and receive support from a CESL instructor. Students in the Graduate/Advanced U-Track are also eligible to apply for CESL's Endorsement, which is accepted by many UA graduate departments and UA International Admissions as fulfillment of minimum English language proficiency requirement.
