What is Conditional Admissions (CAP)?

When students have the academic qualifications to enter the University of Delaware but lacks the English proficiency to be successful in their academic program, they can be conditionally admitted into the university.

Through the Conditional Admissions Program (CAP), students never need to take the TOEFL or IELTS exams!

Instead of taking the TOEFL or IELTS exams, the student will first study English full-time at the ELI. After meeting certain requirements, the student will begin his/her full-time university coursework.
