English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

International students who have a TOEFL score below 100 or an IELTS score below a 7.0 (with no individual band score below a 6.0) are required to satisfactorily complete an English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course in the first semester.  Your admission letter will indicate which EAP course you are required to take.

EAP 6110: Academic Writing and Research I (3 credits)

EAP 6111: Academic Writing and Research II (3 credits)

You will take a short exam in the first class of the semester to ensure you are in the correct EAP course.  You may need to change EAP courses if the results of your exam indicate another course is better suited for you.

EAP course credits do not count towards your degree credit requirements or your degree GPA.  If you do not successfully complete the EAP course, you may be required to take the course again, or you may be put on academic probation or terminated from your degree program.
