Many international students want to apply for Bachelor’s or Master’s degree programs at NEIU, but their level of  English proficiency is not high enough. Students who enroll in NEIU’s SAELL Intensive English Program, and who pass Level 4 in all three core classes with grades of 80% or higher, can submit their SAELL transcript as proof of English language proficiency for admission to NEIU degree programs. Learn about the levels of SAELL!

International applicants who are interested in applying for undergraduate or graduate admission, but who do not meet the English language proficiency minimum scores, may be considered for International Conditional Admission in conjunction with the School for the Advancement of English Language and Learning (SAELL).
