The English Language Program offers an intensive university-preparation language program for nonnative speakers of English and serves international students, U.S. citizens, permanent residents and refugees. Core courses are offered at three levels of instruction — beginning through advanced — in multiple sessions each year. Core courses include reading and writing and speaking and listening.

Students may apply directly to the English Language Program. Admission to the ELP may also be recommended by VCU Undergraduate Admissions and International Admissions at the time of the application review. Placement in the ELP is based on the results of an English Language Placement Exam, taken remotely or upon arrival in Richmond.
