ACADEMICS Academic Programs
ESOL (ESL)
English for Speakers of Other Languages

To ensure English language proficiency and academic support for a diverse body of students, the University of North America has established a comprehensive English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) certificate program.

The university is not authorized by the Student Exchange and Visitor Program (SEVP) to enroll nonimmigrant (F1-Visa) students in its ESOL certificate program.

 

 

English Language Certification

Students receive a course completion certificate for each ESOL course that is successfully completed. Students who complete all 4 courses are awarded the UoNA ESOL Program Certificate.

Students who received UoNA ESOL Program Certificate will be considered as meeting the English proficiency requirements of the UoNA degree programs and may start their academic program immediately.

Program Length

Students may choose to take individual courses or take the entire ESOL Certificate Program. The average time for students to finish the ESOL Certificate Program is 4 terms. Students may repeat courses until certification and 6 terms is considered the normal program length. Students can take a maximum of 9 terms (1.5 times of normal program length) to complete the ESOL Program.
