English as a Second Language Training Option

Students whose first language is not English but who meet admission requirements may be offered conditional letters of admission. Students must apply to UT and provide their academic credentials for consideration. If offered conditional acceptance, students will then be referred to the ELS Language Center on campus for further details regarding the English as a second language program.

ELS Language Center

The ELS Language Center will provide an Intensive English Program here on The University of Tampa campus beginning each month. The ELS program offers 12 proficiency levels, and students can enter the program any month during the year.

The applications for the ELS English Program and for student housing can be downloaded from the ELS Language Centers website If you require more information or assistance with the application process, please contact the ELS Tampa Center at
