The English for International Students Program is designed for students who need to develop their English skills in order to successfully complete academic studies at NDNU. A variety of English language classes are offered to provide students with increased opportunities for English study and practice.

Students are placed in appropriate classes on the basis of previous English study, TOEFL or IELTS scores, and Notre Dame de Namur University ESL Placement Test scores. These classes may be taken with other selected academic classes.

Courses in English for International Students do not satisfy General Education requirements, but this course work, to a maximum of 6 units, may be applied toward a degree as elective credit.
