The English Language Institute (ELI) prepares international students to become responsible global citizens by embracing diversity, thinking critically, and communicating effectively. We have infused our pioneering curricula with ample opportunities for independent and group studies as well as cross-cultural interaction.
The ELI offers several options to meet the needs of international students:
This option is for students who are interested in applying to be conditionally admitted to the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. The concentration is on academic English skills. Once a student has successfully passed the English language proficiency requirements, she/he will enroll in full-time academic classes.

English Language Study at the ELI Only
This option is for students who are interested in concentrating on improving their general English skills. Students on this track have not applied to the university and are not eligible to take academic classes.
