<< Back to International Student Programs

As an international student, you will take 1) an ESL assessment, if English is not your primary language; and 2) a writing placement test given by the School of Liberal Arts.  The ESL Coordinator looks at your test results and entry data and works with the Writing Director to assess your language proficiency and advise you on which English course is best for you. 

The ESL Coordinator supervises the placement and registration of ESL students, coordinates academic support for students enrolled in the ESL curriculum, and monitors student performance and progress throughout the curriculum. 

If you have any questions about English course placement, the ESL curriculum, or other issues related to language skills, please contact Melanie Boston, Assistant Director, (215) 717-6822 or mboston@uarts.edu.
