Important Update Regarding the English Language Program

The English Language Program (ELP) will not be accepting applications nor offering courses for the remainder of 2019 (Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters). If you are interested in the ELP, please submit your application for Winter, 2020.

If you have any questions, please contact the International Center at or at 810-762-0867.



English Language Program offers online courses for all levels of English language proficiency. 

The main ELP program is designed for any person seeking to improve their English language proficiency. The program consists of 6 levels (beginner to advanced) and two strands of courses (Listening & Speaking and Reading & Writing). This program runs for 14 weeks and is available in the Fall, Winter and Spring/Summer terms.

Undergraduate students who plan to apply for a UM-Flint program and complete both Level 6 courses with the grade B or higher qualify for the English language proficiency waiver and are NOT required to submit TOEFL or IELTS scores. To be considered for a waiver, students are required to take and pass both Level 6 courses. At the very beginning of each term, students take a placement test which determins the level.
